Hello.

I am a compelling storyteller. I seek and create visual and emotional experiences. I have something to say and my voice is relatable. I thrive in a highly-collaborative and empathetic team culture, have experience as a scrum master within an agile environment, and excel at mentorship. I crave complex challenges that need refined yet simplified process solutions. With more than 10 years experience, I am a passionate visual designer with a type-centric and photographic asethetic. 

I am currently a graphic designer within a marketing team at a healthcare company in Emeryville, Calif. My days center around increasing engagement and awareness through visual storytelling and problem solving. I work across a variety of media, including print, digital, environmental, and video. 

Before landing in healthcare, I was previously a senior graphic designer at Henge Docks, a tech hardware startup, and a graphic designer at Macworld and PCWorld magazines. 

Years ago, I traded sunshine for snowstorms, and earned my bachelors in Graphic Arts from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. After one too many winters, I returned to the San Francisco Bay Area where I studied Human Resources Management at San Francisco State.

Outside of the 9-6, I spend my time photographing portraits, storytelling, and writing short stories about relationships.  

Fondly,
Yasmin
