Clark MacLeod is a seasoned designer and world traveller.
I am currently studying Chinese full-time and taking refresher courses in design and programming. My new project, Super Lucky Elephant, aims to create educational titles for the App. Store.
Previously I was an engineer at the Industrial Technology Research Institutes' (ITRI) Creativity Lab (CL) where I worked on web based systems that allowed for greater collaboration amongst CL researchers. I also led projects that explored an array of ambient and tangible interfaces, invisibly integrating data into people’s lives.
Before CL I was design lead at ITRI’s Information Service Centre where I helped form one of the first user experience design teams in Taiwan.
As a freelancer my work has ranged from sound art installations, to creative direction for print and design for the web.
Interests include mobile culture, creativity, ambient and tangible interfaces, programming, open web, collaborative systems, user experience and sound art. Weekend pursuits tend to involve the outdoors, particularly hiking in the mountains south of Hsinchu.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music (Jazz) from St. Francis Xavier University and a Master of Applied Art from Chiao Tung University. I also spent 3 years at Humber College of Music where I studied trumpet and jazz performance.
I live in Hsinchu, Taiwan with my wife, daughter, son, and 2 dogs.
