Co-Founder & Creative Director of Vrai & Oro
With a background in creative design and user experience, Vanessa leads brand development and experience design for Vrai & Oro. After receiving her BFA in graphic design & communication arts from OTIS College of Art & Design, Vanessa traveled to Paris to work for the award winning design and marketing firm, Crazy Baby!. Returning to the States, she founded Duk Design, a boutique web and design firm tailored to creating unique and lasting brand identities for startups and small businesses. During this time she was recognized by Google as a top 20 emerging creative designer and was asked to participate in the +20 Google UX workshop in Los Angeles. Continuing to further her education in user experience design, Vanessa (along with co-founder Chelsea) attended the very first User Experience course offered at General Assembly, LA. Shortly after completing the program, Vrai & Oro was born.
