Margaret Peng

Designer

Los Angeles, CA, USA
Margie is a self-taught designer (and the help of several UCLA Extension classes), with a background in business communications from University of Washington. Besides understanding her tastes in type design and color combinations, her empathy for the consumer and the business side is held to the highest of importance. Afterall, they are who we're designing for.

She is willing to undergo challenges. No task is too large or small for her to handle. If there's passion, there's a way to make it happen.
