My family moved to America for increased opportunity and stability. So of course I, the first born in America, decided to follow in the footsteps of my calligrapher grandfather and pursue a creative career! I started with ambitions of becoming an illustrator. Quickly I discovered the possibilities of working digitally - specifically the possibility of undoing mistakes. I’ve been doggedly aiming for the most polished form of every graphical project, ever since. Even if I have to do it one pica at a time.
When it comes to my design experience, my journey began with packaging design, specifically creating custom boxes for Martha Stewart Crafts. Along the way, I’ve picked up the taste and skills for branding, I’ve using my experience working with big brands to launch a few style guides that were used internationally. While packaging and branding are the bread and butter of my experience, I continue to round out my career with projects that include designing apps, websites, wedding stationery, convention signage, and more. My illustration background serves me well in design too. I use my digital skills to create striking icons and bold drawings. I’ve even begun creating merchandise, and right now I’m obsessed with creating unique enamel pins.
On the rare times I’m not designing, I can be found sewing, creating sculpture, doing embroidery, drinking green tea in excess of what is reasonable, baking treats to ruin colleagues’ diets, and pestering my cats.
