Stevie Thuy Anh Nguyen / Designer & Event MC

In all things, be kind

In all things, be kind. Stevie (they/them/theirs) Thuy Anh Nguyen has designed their life to affect a future driven by their belief that individuals acting in sincerity and with radical generosity, sharing knowledge, skills, opportunities and time, in and with their communities, can change the direction of the world. In their roles, they work on manifesting their vision of a world where they, their child, family, friends, and communities are thriving: where there is equity, justice, and unquantifiable, accountable, love. They’re really hard on themselves when they take actions contrary to their values and continues to practice putting their values into action and learning how to love harder with every moment.

Stevie has been a UX Designer by title for 4 years at a starting-up creative agency located on Unceded Coast Salish territories, primarily working with the internal learning teams within a global technology corporation. Previous to this, they spent 6 years in a leadership development firm practicing their self-taught design and creative production skills within consulting, marketing and business development assistant roles.

Along with a detour to give birth to a little person who would change the course of their life, they have also spent nearly 10 years attempting to complete an undergraduate degree in Communications and Interactive Arts and Technology, while also having been a co-teacher and co-learner in the same program, with their friend and mentor, Russell Taylor, for the past 5 years.

In their role as a UX Designer, Stevie excels in collaborating with internal project teams, co-creating product visions with client executives and stakeholders, and has a particular fondness for co-leading design-thinking workshops. With UX teams-of-one, or large, cross-disciplinary teams of interdisciplinary designers, developers and content and media producers, they’ve been involved in delivering single webpages and forms using existing design systems, to launching and promoting organization-wide internal platforms and portals with thousands of pages, reaching global audiences using custom-built design systems and new brand identities.
