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.   

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!
