Today we welcome a new member to the team: Amy Phung, who joins us as our Digital Design Project Assistant.
Amy is a senior Digital Design major at Seattle University. She has an extensive background in working with marginalized communities. Most recently, she volunteered at Kids In Need of Defense (KIND), a nonprofit organization that helps minors who have traveled to the United States alone navigate the legal system, as well as helping to find housing for new arrivals. Prior to that, Amy volunteered as a classroom assistant, working specifically with English Language Learners at Wing Luke Elementary.
Amy completed a graphics internship with Rudy’s Barbershop in 2014, where she created images and signage used in all Seattle area shops. Amy has used her design skills in service projects where she helped re-brand and create marketing materials for the Coalition for Refugees from Burma, and in another, created visual aids for a health curriculum for middle school students.
Professionally, she has had success working on freelance design and branding projects for local companies such as Dorothea Coffee and K9 Convergence.
Amy brings a unique enthusiasm to the Project on Family Homelessness because of the intersection of her two passions: design and service.
She’s part of our legacy of awesome Digital Design students:
- McKenna Haley (B.A. 2014), who co-created Housing Development Consortium’s affordable housing infographic series among other projects;
- and Krista Kent (B.A. 2014), who worked with Perry Firth on the infographics about homelessness in the public school system and more.
Huge thanks to Prof. Naomi Kasumi in Seattle University’s Fine Arts department for recommending these great students to us.
