About Me: Hello! My name is Jaina (pronounced jay-na) and I’m Communication Designer with a minor in Consumer Experience Management and Art History. During my father’s military career, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to grow up in Japan, Italy, and throughout the US. From this, I've had the chance to experience cultures first-hand, from participating in neighborhood festivals in Italy to living out my obsession with collecting Pokémon packaging as a child in Japan. Experiences like this have allowed me to become aware of ideas and cultures I never would’ve been exposed to. This, in turn, has greatly influenced my creative perspective and shaped me into who I am today! I strive to create visually engaging designs while creating an environment that encourages positivity, collaboration, and fun. When I’m not designing, you can find me hyping up my teammates in a game of Valorant, getting lost in a fantasy novel, or finding new food joints to try!
What’s something that is always on your work desk? Several Smiski figures (for the vibes) and a coffee or tea to keep me going. My recent favorite has been cardamom tea with cream!
