Design Director, Brand development, based in Shanghai
When Lana attends a meeting everyone knows what to expect—a burst of great ideas combined with exceptional vision, imagination and insight. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg for what she contributes to every project, large or small.
Whether designing a new logo for a national non-profit or grinding through guidelines on a tough deadline, Lana’s intuitive creative style—as well as her grace and humor—always shine through. At home with a mouse or a pencil and paper, she brings art to design.
Since joining us Lana’s breakthrough work has enhanced and illuminated the core tenets of many leading brands, including American Express, Allstate, SAP, the Y, CooperVision, Dominion Energy and AARP. She was part of the team that won REBRAND 100’s 2010 Best of Award for Turnaround for Children’s identity as well as the 2010 DBA Design Effectiveness Award (Bronze Medal) for Phoenix House’s corporate brand identity design. Lana currently works in our Shanghai office, creating powerful visual systems and identities for brands in China.
