Hi! My name is Jin Won Heo and I am a  designer and always looking for new challenge.

It is a great pleasure to introduce myself. My name is Jin-won Heo and I am passionate about coming up with ideas and creating them. Whenever I meet with my girlfriend, we always visit stores with various design product and idea product as our date course. Every time I visit, I always look forward to which new products are released and I also experience and closely observe different products and gain new ideas from them. This is how much I love creative thinking and activities.

Just like the meaning of my Korean name, I am continuously challenging myself and exerting efforts to become a starter of design.
