FAQ

Hello.

πŸ‘‹ Hi there. I am obviously Mystie, and this is my story...abbreviated.Β 

I am a New York City-based 🍎 transdisciplinary product designer and transmedia marketing visual storyteller.

I work with clients to fulfill their media design and technological needs with a focus on user experience, user interface design, and visually-focused transmedia storytelling.

I'm currently seeking a possible hybrid position and projects that make the best use of my interdisciplinary knowledge and transmedia UX/UI product design skillset.

"Play Mystie For Me

I was born on the bayou 🎢, and named after Erroll Garner's jazz standard πŸ“» popularized by Johnny Mathis in a cover version used in the 1971 psychological thriller πŸ™€ (and Clint Eastwood's directorial debut) πŸ“½οΈ "Play Misty for Me."

As such, media, entertainment, and music has been a large defining part of what makes up my identity.

This is what I do:

I have over 24 years πŸ¦„ of experience designing for web, social media, and music marketing.

I have designed and launched responsive websites, created cohesive brand-identity content for ad campaigns, as well as designed systems for interactive mobile apps, games, and enterprise software. πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»

While my primary strength is visual design, I am able to contribute more holistically as a writer, photographer, editor, illustrator, and motion animator.

Before my career in design, I received my BA in Art & Art History with a Concentration in Media Arts and a Double Emphasis in Photography & Digital Video from DePaul University.

My minor was in Communications with a Media Studies Emphasis specifically focused on Audience and Fan Studies.

My interest in human-centered design drove me to expand my skill set by attending the NYC Flatiron Schools UX/UI Design Intensive Bootcamp Program.

This is why I do it:

Throughout my life, I’ve worked towards the blending of the sense-based arts with communication arts, while simultaneously driving my professional development forward. As far as I know, you only live once, so I’d like to try and understand as much as humanly possible.

I think great design, like a good story, can help to describe and/or define the seemingly ineffable as well as empower people with deep empathy and understanding.

In my limited "spare time" I can be found practicing my guitar 🎸 technique, dying my hair 🌈, songwriting πŸ““, singing πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ€, recording πŸŽ™οΈ, doodling πŸ–ŠοΈ, working the merch table πŸ’ͺ (and helping with pre and post-production) for a show, playing fetch with my cats🐱🐾, and/or taking an online professional development course 🧠.

When I need a moment of reflection, I'll usually step away from the computer and/or merch table to workout on the elliptical, dance (if you can really call it dancing)πŸ’ƒπŸΌ, or practice some sun salutations πŸ§˜πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ.

I'm also a twin β™Š but I swear I'm the good one πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ.
