Olá! Konnichiwa!

I am Yukie. You can call me "Yuki", "Yukinha", "Yuki-chan" or "Hori-san". "YHdzn" is the nickname of my studio. I was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, currently I am based in Japan.

As a curious traveler, I love to know about new cultures. As a dedicated apprentice, I’m always ready to learn and to share knowledge and practices. As a Designer, I’m attempting to blur the borders between Design and Art, experimenting several types of interactions between thinking and making and between people and technology. After focusing many years on Graphic Design, I have been engaging in an enthusiastic transition from print to interaction, through exploration of the brave new universe of UX/UI Design. It’s a challenging adventure!

I’m also actively involved in various Art Projects as an artist and researcher. Feel free to take a look at my visual art works.

Recently, I have become fascinated to vegetarian recipes 🥦 and edible gardening 🌱. (Yeah, you're right, it is the influence of pandemic!).

Thank you for visiting my portfolio! 🙂
