Viviana Espinosa is a Design Lecturer for the City University of New York system. She has a Masters degree in Interaction Design from the New York University, and a Bachelor degree in Graphic Design from Western Connecticut State University.
She is currently an Interaction Designer and Developer for the Weill Cornell Medical College and the Presbyterian Hospital in New York City.
Viviana has spent a large part of her life drawing inspiration from her dual citizenship life and travels. Whenever she's not in a classroom, or designing cool websites, she can be often found on the road or developing a new project.
Before she knew what design was in her blood, she was already a designer, spending countless teenage hours figuring out how to improve a font, crafting her own sketch books, fashioning clothing, venturing into Industrial Design by researching new ways to create objects and exploring techniques or materials to create them. Many of these hobbies or talents she currently employs but improves them by adding interactivity in order to make them beautiful and insightful installations.
Her professional career includes the biweekly publication of a bilingual newspaper, to being an Art Director for a major brand at renowned retail stores, and most currently a web designer and front-end developer while still enjoying her product design skills.
During the recent years of her career; the environment has been the focus of her inspiration, due to her spending close to ten years as a design manager and advocate of a public transit agency, where she drew further inspiration for her present installations.
Works have been exhibited at Western Connecticut State University, New York University, Conflux Festival and at The Lab, all in the New England area in the US.
