Stella Wong Design

My mission is to help clients solve design-related problems by applying the wide range of experience and skills acquired over my 23-year design career. I often engaged in projects outside my comfort zone throughout my career because they were opportunities to gain new knowledge and grow new skills. Each new experience adds to my repertoire of "tools" that maximizes my ability to solve the many different challenges my clients face.
