Hello! I wasn’t always a designer—I come from the writing and editing side of magazines and journalism. After a few years of working alongside talented publication designers (and trying to sneak design responsibilities into my day jobs), I made the decision to do what I love full-time—design and lettering. Today, I’m lucky that I get to spend my days in a flow state, still getting to work with words and storytelling—which I’ll always love—but now, in a visual way.
Case in point: Currently I’m at Penguin Random House, overseeing a team that produces print and digital visuals, as well as motion design, that promote a vast array of beautiful books.
I’m also available for freelance design and lettering projects. Let’s talk! Send me a message at vian [dot] nguy [at] gmail [dot] com.
