Design is in the DNA of our newest designer. She was pre-destined to be a designer since her pre-school days when she was awarded "Most Cheerful and Dramatic Artist." Of course, she told us that she would get in trouble for drawing and doodling rather than paying attention in class. Now, as a full-fledged ZURBian, she doesn't have to worry about sketching. After all, it's part of the job.
So without further ado, please welcome Jessica Phan to our team!
Jessica was born in San Francisco, but spent her childhood in a small South Carolina town. She came back in the Bay Area for high school where her biology teacher encouraged her to study design and illustration. That's because her lab results weren't great. However, the teacher thought her chromosome sketches were spectacular. With that motivation, Jessica ended up at San Jose State to study design. She briefly worked to get her MFA in Graphic Design, but dropped out because she wanted to expand out of print and explore the wide world of the Web.
She then became a Photoshop wizard and ecommerce nerd for an internet retailer company, but eventually made her way to us. So everyone say hello to Jessica!
