Trisha Tan


Trisha is a multidisciplinary designer, design thinker, creative problem solver, and dog lover in Brooklyn, NYC.

This is Borg Borg, my doggo. He's 12, likes naps, milk bars, belly rubs, and long walks in the park. He's got a great smile.

Hello! Apa khabar?

Multi-disciplinary, passionate, irreverent, and curious; I'm a design thinker & creative problem solver. My work is focused on branding, strategy, and digital design, with in-depth understandings of the fundamentals of typography and principles of design. I've worked in various fields of design, notably social & environmental good, fashion & luxury brands, advertising, experiential marketing, B2B branding, book publication, event management, newspaper & engraving production, lettering design, and also design education.

A strategic move years in the making, working with and learning from all these various fields informs my process and work because I believe research should inform design—creating thoughtful solutions that are mindful, functional, and of course, beautiful.

In my current role at Factory, I am spearheading the creative team's design branch by leadership through empathy, mindfulness, design thinking practises, celebrations of cultural diversity, and irreverent humour while promoting/overseeing educational learning mentorship for designers to encourage a positive, constructive learning team environment.
