Hi! i'm mystie
a challenge seeker, problem solver, and hard worker with a love for clever symbol, elegant typography, animation, as well as traditional and digital painting

about me...
I hold a BFA in Graphic Design from Texas Tech University. Originally from the southwest coast of Vietnam, I have been exposed to different perspectives across cultures that have greatly fueled and enriched my creativity. I offer a flexible range of styles and can play different roles as a designer, illustrator, and animator.

Have a look around and feel free to contact me if you think I can be of service
to you. Thank you for stopping by!
