Say howdy to our new Visual Designer, Jennifer Tu!
Jennifer will primarily be managing design assets and systems for our client, Thermo-Fisher. We’re looking forward to working with her and welcoming her into our office. Learn a little bit more about Jennifer’s background, hobbies, and passions below!
We Asked Jennifer To Tell Us About Herself
I was born and raised in Fresno, California. We moved to the Austin area last November. I am a mom to the most amazing 2-year-old, Archer, who will be a big brother next year in April. I have been a graphic designer for 10ish years. My education is actually in Interactive Multimedia, but I have been working professionally in print and marketing. I am hoping to move into UIUX (Visual) design and am currently upskilling with an amazing, local non-profit, AUTM.
What are your personal and professional goals for 2020?
Hoping to gain a better understanding of User Experience design and try to empathize with the user versus what I think the user needs.
What would your last meal be?
A big bowl of Pho. It’s like a big warm hug on a cold rainy day. Go try it. TRUST me.
Who would you say is your role model? Why?
My older sister, Bobbie. My mom passed away from breast cancer when I was really young, so my sister was my role model growing up. She inspired me to become an independent, education-driven woman.
Why did you choose to work for HMG?
I’ve always wanted to work in an agency setting. Obviously, due to Covid, I am working remotely. But so far, in the past two weeks, James has been super supportive. I haven’t had a boss like that before, and I feel super fortunate. I also really resonate with the values the company holds, such as always being responsive and accountable. I never try to make excuses for mistakes but take it as a learning opportunity to be better.
