Hi, I’m Nancy. I’m an unabashed design addict currently studying my second design degree, Industrial Design, where I’ve found my design home. I have six years of design education behind me, and am extremely eager to begin working in the industry as a first step towards a career focused on global product design and innovation. I am a passionate, innovative and mature designer with excellent interpersonal and communication skills developed over 5 years full-time in the workforce. I am highly organised, motivated, able to meet deadlines and capable of working both independently and collaboratively.
