Mimi Nguyen is a digital designer and an illustrator based in Denver, CO. After moving to America, she decided to fulfill her childhood dream of becoming an artist and working toward getting her degree at CU Denver. As a Vietnamese immigrant, Mimi feels her experiences allow her unique sensibility and design with a distinct cultural perspective and appreciation. Her design philosophy focuses on empathy and user-centered design principles, and she firmly believes that design can solve problems and bring people closer. Her long-term professional goal is to become a UI/UX designer who supports good causes, enhances the quality of life, and focuses on sociocultural and educational issues. When not working, Mimi loves trying new brunch places, traveling, attending concerts, and hanging out with her puppy, Gigi.
