A bit about myself
Hey there it's Vanessa! I'm a multidisciplinary designer who strives to promote positive social impact through print & digital experiences with my strengths in graphic & visual designbrand identity, and UX strategy. Currently, I am designing learning experiences with products that teaches kids STEAM concepts while they have fun at KiwiCo!

For the past years, I have learned to design with empathy from working with amazing people in diverse areas of education, lifestyle, health, entertainment, digital/experiential marketing, e-commerce, and D2C products at KiwiCo, Disney, Lionsgate, IMG Agency, and non-profit involvements.

Besides sharing my ideas through design, I also enjoy sharing my experiences with the places I gothe food I eat, and the sunsets I watch. Other things that currently excite me include connecting with cool people through my pro bono work and building my educational non-profit Menti with my friends. 
Diving into design values
Speculative Design was a unique Visual Arts program that I studied at UC San Diego. Through Speculative Design methods, I learned to value the design research behind my design decisions and have empathy toward speculating creative solutions for the future. This methodology's approach shaped up my interest in innovation and emerging technology behind new ventures with how these ideas can add value to our society. It also sparked my constant curiosity in exploring the interconnecting areas of visual communication, human-centered design, and social impact design in different mediums/media.

​In this agile generation, I believe that interdisciplinary study is a key to develop the creative skill of connecting dots together to form a bigger picture of solutions for a better world and future. I hope to apply this design-forward thinking and collaborative process in my work to bring unique perspectives to the creative table
