At VSA Partners, I worked on projects ranging from new business deals to digital marketing campaigns and more.

My primary client at VSA Partners was IBM, and I worked on multiple campaigns for the company. Throughout my time at VSA, I sharpened my knowledge of scalable design solutions for company clients and projects, as well as my client relation skills.

Designed with studio owner Allison Tran, Touchy Feely evokes a feeling of comfort, energy, and softness.

Future of Work

Investor Zine
@ The Future Company

The Future Company was an R&D studio focused on social impact and speculative design research methods.

In a three-week sprint, our team developed two risograph saddle-stitched publications covering our research on the future of work. We sent the zines to potential investors and research partners to showcase the new methodologies that defined The Future Company's research.
