Hello hi, I’m Vivian!

I’m a Vancouver-based inquisitive Product & Service designer with a background in Industrial & Graphic design, as well as an empathetic explorer of the world.

I design empowering experiences to spark social change.

Energized by the passionate conversations and explorations of the world around me, my work is often focused on critically exploring our sense of self and well-being within the context of community. Using design as an agent of change and integration, I create and craft holistic systems and strategies to tell stories that are poignant and memorable. 

My endless curiosity and ability to approach problems from varying perspectives and scales, allows me to find thoughtful and impactful solutions. Over the years I have grown as a multidisciplinary designer capable of producing both 3D and 2D works within a collaborative high-stress environment, and have since developed a passion for community-based social innovation work, web design and publication design. In addition, this has fuelled my interest in street/portrait photography as well as content creation.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out and talk!
