A 'happyimadesignr' isn't a strange creature from a strange land. It's actually the screen name of our latest designer, who joined us this week.
So without further ado, let's introduce —
Jennifer Tang, Designer
The nickname of 'happyimadesignr' came about after Jennifer designed her first website, and it perfectly describes the excitement and satisfaction she felt in that moment. And while she's designed other things, her passion is for interaction design and the web. That makes her the perfect addition to our wacky team at ZURB.
Believe it or not, Jennifer did have a life before ZURB. Born and raised in San Jose, Jennifer's desire to create came from her great-grandmother's side, which is full of artists, and her grandfather, who is a renowned painter. You could say that creativity is in her blood. She's always crafting small art projects, but didn't discover design until she started blogging and customizing her blog. She then designed websites and flyers for her church — and that was it, she was hooked!
Jennifer got her BFA in Graphic Design from San Jose State. While she pulled many all-nighters at SJSU, Jennifer made some great friends. Now she's joined us at ZURB to do what she does best — use her skills to solve problems and create beautiful, smart designs.
Using technology to create something that is both visually engaging and also solves problems excites me. I love how design works to communicate a message.
When she's not solving tough design problems, she's spending time with her husband and their pets, a black cat named Sammy and a border collie/springer spaniel mix named Jojo. She often runs the Los Gatos Creek trail and gets her workout on at the gym.
