Hello, I'm Jessie!
I'm strategically minded, hands-on designer based in Ontario, Canada, Taipei, Taiwan, Shenzhen, China London, UK. I specialize in conceptualizing and creating visual expressions spanning graphic design, art direction, illustration, digital design. I live at the intersection of marketing and user experience, and thrive in understanding how to take users on a complete journey from discovery to adoption and success.
At OnePlus, I lead a strong in-house design team of 3, overseeing briefs of all sizes. I'm responsible for strategic and creative support to key EU countries, strengthening our social online presence by activating user-targeted campaigns to tell brand and product story. I've also worked directly with Google, Amazon, Qualcomm, McLaren, National Geographic, and The Institution of Environmental Sciences.
Whether it’s through experimentation, craft, or the endless pursuit of self-improvement, I’m always looking for new ways to use and improve my skillset. I hope to create work that is just as meaningful as it is visually appealing.
For inquiries, collaborations, and questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
