HELLO!

I'm Stacey Lo.

I am a seeker for opportunities.
I am a lover for culture, creativity, and education.  
I am passionate about creating experiences and sharing moments. 

I'm a small town girl at heart.
I adore elephants and mermaids! 
I enjoy the simplicity of sipping a cup of tea
while catching up on reruns.

WHAT I CAN DO:

Working as a Graphic Designer has allowed me to incorporate all of my diverse skills and use them cohesively to handle complex projects and delivering upon tight deadlines. I enjoy creating experiences and marketing materials that convey values for both clients and end users. In addition, I have planning and organization skills that helps me balance work, team support and office responsibilities in a timely and professional manner.

WHERE I COME FROM:

I graduated from California State University, Chico in 2015 with a double major in Communication Design: Graphic Design and Asian Studies while holding multiple jobs, internships, studying abroad, and being an active member in several organizations. My 3-1/2 years at Chico State shaped and molded me into the person and professional I am today. 

WHAT I LOVE TO DO: 

When I'm not designing, you can catch me reading, playing with my camera, learning a new language, leisurely kayaking, taking road trips, or attending awesome social events/workshops.

 

How can I help you tell your story today?

Thank you for dropping by, have a wonderful day! ♥
