Two years ago, Jessica Phan shared some of her New Year's resolutions on Fast Company Design in "5 Realistic New Year’s Resolutions For Designers In 2016". Within those two years, Jessica has added a few more to her list as she spearheaded the design team over at a HR tech startup, Zugata; and more as she's back as an independent design consultant as of February 2018. Join us to hear the lessons Jessica has learned throughout her journey to become a better designer.
Born in San Francisco, California, Jessica Phan always loved making things. Throughout her journey as a designer, she had the opportunity to design for many brands and companies like Samsung, SAP, JCPenney, and Sequoia Capital. Today, Jessica is an independent design consultant and advisor, helping various startups solve next-gen problems. On the side, Jessica runs Hathorway on her own, a sustainable fashion brand with a mission to empower women. With any free time left, she enjoys thrift-shopping, indulging boba milk tea, and traveling around the world.
