ARTCENTER COLLEGE OF DESIGN
Priscilla Chong is a graphic designer, food lover, mother of two dogs, and often confuses herself with Leslie Knope. She became interested in design by contributing to the Yearbook team in middle and high school. She started at ArtCenter right after and did a study away in the Testlab Studio in Berlin, Germany. There she learned that she is a people designer, her priority is connecting humans with each other. She has completed two internships: with Manual Creative in SF where she flexed her creative muscles on a range of cultural and tech projects; and with CASE Agency in NYC involving design solutions for the beauty and skincare industry. Priscilla has also been recognized with numerous awards, and she assists many teachers in the classroom to give back to the community. She loves to get to know people over a delicious meal and coffee.
