LiSun Francisco - Illustration and Graphic Design
Hello! I'm a graphic designer and illustrator based in North NJ/NY. In my spare time, I enjoy being an unofficial brand ambassador for Glossier, watching Julio Torres' stand-up comedy (see also, Papyrus) and drinking ginger tea.
A little backstory:
I spent much of my post-collegiate years taking on jobs that offered an unofficial design curriculum, landing a job in a LES art gallery and freelancing at a ceramic studio, before working as a visual merchandiser at ZARA.
Somewhere between folding a stack of jeans and revamping an entire shopfloor at 6 am, I finally decided to lead with my instincts and hone my natural passion for illustration and design into a career. I enrolled in Shillington and over the course of a year learned the technicals tools to accurately communicate and express ideas through a visual language. At their core, my original designs often try to inspire joy or a sense of delight.
