Greetings + Salutations
Hello there. My name is Jeanelle Mak.
I’m a designer, illustrator, and maker of things. I am passionate about crafting thoughtful and meaningful experiences that extend through each impression and interaction.
I have experience in creating interactive digital products and campaigns with clients leading in education and edutainment, technology and innovation, beauty and fashion, food and consumer goods, entertainment and media, community developments and cultural institutions.
I am currently designing for children of all ages and making toys for tomorrow at Tinybop.
Previously at Big Spaceship and Isobar.
