My name is George Gu. I'm currently pursing a Bachelor of Science degree in Informatics and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, Language and Literature at the University of Washington. My area of study focuses on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). I propose that design is a language. It visualizes our thinking and makes sense of our intelligence.
