FAQ

Hello.

๐Ÿ‘‹ Hi there. I am Mystie, and this is my story, abbreviated.ย 

I am a New York City-based ๐ŸŽ 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 ๐ŸŽถ, and named after Erroll Garner's jazz standard ๐Ÿ“ป popularized by Johnny Mathis in a cover version used in the 1971 psychological thriller ๐Ÿ™€ (and Clint Eastwood's directorial debut) ๐Ÿ“ฝ๏ธ "Play Misty for Me."

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

What I do:

I have over 24 years ๐Ÿฆ„ 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. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป

While my primary strength is visual design, I can 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.

Why I do it:

Throughout my life, Iโ€™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 Iโ€™d like to try and understand as much as humanly possible.

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

In my limited "spare time," I can be found:

  • practicing my guitar ๐ŸŽธ technique
  • dying my hair ๐ŸŒˆ
  • songwriting ๐Ÿ““
  • singing ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽค
  • recording ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ
  • doodling ๐Ÿ–Š๏ธ
  • working the merch table ๐Ÿ’ช (and helping with pre and post-production) for a show
  • playing fetch with my cats๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿพ, and
  • taking an online professional development course ๐Ÿง 

When I need a moment of reflection, I'll usually step away from the computer or merch table to workout on the elliptical, dance (if you can call it dancing)๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ, or practice some sun salutations ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ.

I'm also a twin โ™Š, but I swear I'm the good one ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ.
