My name is Nguyet, pronounced “new way”—like, New Way Design, the name of this website. I am based in Washington D.C.

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’ve been designing digital experiences for over a decade. Currently, I’m the Co-founder and Design Lead at Civil, a decentralized marketplace for journalism built on Ethereum blockchain. Civil is a ConsenSys spoke. Prior to joining Civil and ConsenSys, I was the Creative Director of Product at Atlantic 57, The Atlantic’s creative agency, designing digital experiences for mission-driven brands. Before that, I solved user experience problems for Sabre Hospitality Solutions, and AOL, Inc.

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 from the University of Maryland, College Park.
