Worked in journalism,
now producing research
for designers.




I’m a designer + researcher who applies ethnography, storytelling and design thinking methods to make things matter more. As a multimedia designer myself, I find meanings in producing research for designers out of a love for connecting them with people and ideas.

I'm also a former journalist who specializes in story development, research, writing, and editing—as well as uncovering actionable insights around the "softer" parts of human experience.

Always happy to connect with design students who don't feel like they fit into any boxes and explore various aspects of your career / design / identity crisis :) Ping me at: ︎ maviscaodesign@gmail.com


Greetings from Los Angeles, CA.
