MY NAME IS

MELISSA NGUYEN

I used to work in healthcare 💊 and freelance as a calligrapher 🎨 but realized I wanted a career that allowed me to combine my two past loves and use my creativity to help people.

Today, I'm an end-to-end product designer 👩🏻‍💻  based in NYC, passionate about design ops and system design.

a little bit about me

I'm a product designer and creative entrepreneur born and raised in New York City with an extensive background in healthcare and modern calligraphy. After spending some time in the healthcare field and managing my little calligraphy business, I found myself thirsting for something more, something that would marry my two loves: art and science. That’s when I found myself falling in love with product design.

Whenever I'm not cultivating my growing pixel paranoia, I can be found in the world of modern calligraphy or working on a illustration series of a digital "mini me."

Outside of design, I love to travel! Especially getting lost and just immersing myself in the experience - and I've often been rewarded with the most breathtaking sceneries. Ask me about my trip to Taiwan and journey with a new friend.
