Hi There, I'm Marianne.

I'm applying to be Casetify's Product Designer.

I design cleaver products.


  • Cleaver Ice Skates

  • Cleaver Phone

  • Cleaver Golf Club

  • Cleaver Bookmark

  • Cleaver Ruler

What's up with the Cleaver?


First thing, I'm no psycho.

It started with your Product Designer post. The third bullet point under Skills said a good understanding of "cleavers."

Questions arose in me. How might I best exhibit my cleaver knowledge? How might I innovate cleaver products?

And here we are.

I'd love to work with you guys, even if the requirements are weird. Or, especially if.

Email me »

Don't worry, you can be blunt with me.

Work Experience


Freelance Human Centered Designer

On - Off Design & Technology | Jan 2015 - present

I worked as part of a team to do user research and interviews in Mainland China. I also helped create user journey maps and defined user personas to aid in a website redesign.


Product Manager

Save22.com | Apr 2013 - Aug 2014

I translated business needs and user stories into usable wireframes and collaborate with engineers on feasibility. This resulted into website features such as a customised email newsletter system for marketing and user acquisition.

My main responsibility is to push new features for product improvement. I see through the whole project, from user interviews, to ideation, wireframing, prototyping and usability testing.

I also have a unique multi-disciplinary role in the startup as having cycled within marketing, design and data acquisition management.
