What do you do for Gap Inc.?
October 26, 2018
I’m a graphic designer at Old Navy in the marketing department. I help concept and design environmental experiences that connect our audiences with our product.
What inspires you?
My surroundings — creative talent at work, supportive family and friends, and this beautiful city. These all inspire me to be creative, to keep going, and to just live life.
Comfy and sometimes girly.
Sweatshirt, jeans, and sneakers.
All-time favorite piece of clothing:
A sweatshirt that says, “SLOW JAMS,” because I love sweatshirts and I love slow jams.
What you’ve learned from customers:
They aren’t afraid to tell you what’s on their mind. And that really helps us to become a better and stronger brand.
Favorite Gap Inc. moment:
Seeing my work live in stores for the first time. And my friends and family sending me selfies of themselves posing with my designs.
A café cashier/barista at a sports club in Novato, CA.
Everything happens for a reason. During my last quarter before I graduated with my bachelor’s in business, I took on a marketing internship. During my time there, I designed a lot of fliers (granted it wasn't my best work, but I loved doing it). It made me realize that I wasn’t meant to be a businesswoman, and instead I should be a designer. A year later, I enrolled in design school and here I am...
Always puts you in a good mood:
Being next to my dogs.
“Hey Mr. D.J.” by Zhané. Never fails to get me in the groove.
Something people don’t know about you:
I started Tae Kwon Do when I was 7 years old and I’m a 2nd degree black belt.
What makes you most excited to come to work in the morning?
My coworkers. I really love the work I do, and having people that I love to work with makes it all the better.
What makes your job unique?
I get to design things that can create change. I think that’s pretty cool.
Why Gap Inc.?
The company not only cares about its employees, but also cares about giving back to the community.
