“Whether in Korea or the eleven homes I've lived in the U.S., my mom taught me the art of ‘people watching’,” says Hanbi Ko. “For hours on end I would study people and observe their interactions. I loved the ambiguity of every new situation.”  Optimistic about extending possibility through design, Hanbi always looks for pockets of opportunity to spark joy in daily lives of people. Having worked at Google, Poketo, and the Getty Museum, she uncovers brand value, dissects insights, solves problems, and aligns aesthetic language to deliver a unique story. As she puts it, “Designing an engaging reality and authentic experiences starts and ends with people.”
