Steph Wang takes a careful, thoughtful approach to her designs, making her work as visually compelling as it is effective and persuasive. More than creating standalone pieces, she enjoys creating visual systems for clients that are part of a cohesive narrative.
Once on a STEM education track, Steph discovered art in high school. Her initial instinct was to combine these two in college by studying architecture. As she explored more, she found joy in the flexibility inherent in graphic and communication design. She relishes the opportunity to express herself through a broad range of conventional, physical and digital media.
A few questions for Steph.
Where’d you go to school and what did you study?
I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis Class of 2018 in Communication Design.
What do you do outside of work?
Besides work, I like to play Ultimate Frisbee, whether it’s for a club team or in a league. Also, since I have not been able to truly explore STL during college, so I try my best to try out to different restaurants, activities, and events.
What do you wish you had more time to do?
I wish I had more time to explore new media and be creative. To draw more or try different ways of making.
What do you want people to say when they look at your/our work?
I want people to not only see something visually appealing, but also see the thought we put in order to create a narrative and cohesive visual system. Seeing a clients excited about a new look for their companies is a rewarding experience.
Share a quote about the industry, advice, or what you’ve learned so far.
There will never be a point in my career I want to stop learning. But with learning definitely comes with more failures than success, in any field. I’m someone that is very hard on myself sometimes so learning to accept failure or mistakes as part of the process of good design is the best thing I’ve learned.
