HELLO & WELCOME
My name is Nguyet, pronounced “new way”—like, New Way Design, the name of this website.
I facilitate communication through design and visual art. At the heart of what I do is bridging the gap between the people who make things and the people who use those things. I believe in honest, and transparent design patterns that respect people’s time and intelligence. Therefore I strive for clarity and simplicity in my design solutions.
I enthusiastically come to the table with over a decade of working experience as a designer. Currently, I am the Creative Director and Designer at Atlantic Media Strategies (AMS), the digital consultancy of TheAtlantic.com, based in Washington, D.C. Prior to joining AMS, I solved user experience problems for luxury hotels and resorts at Sabre Hospitality Solutions, and AOL.com’s homepage.
In my spare time, I co-founded New Way Design LLC, a freelance company designing WordPress websites, marketing collateral and brand identity for 4 years. I also partnered with friends in my community to start Probonafide, a network of designers, developers and project managers who volunteered time to provide professional services to grassroots organizations. Specifically, organizations that support humanitarian efforts, education, the arts, community development, and the environment. Unfortunately, due to limited availability, I’ve stopped accepting new projects for the foreseeable future.
In my very limited spare time, I explore watercolor portraits, travel as much as possible, and try to contribute to the community.
I earned a BA in Fine Arts, with concentration in graphic design from the University of Maryland, College Park.
Thanks for stopping by. I’d be tickled if you’d drop me a line at nguyet @ new way design . com
