Breaking the Rules: One Designer’s Journey from Science to Tech

Tessa Chung believes that rules are meant to be broken.

She has a habit of thinking outside of the box and tackling any challenge that comes her way. As a designer, Tessa works on everything from developing mobile app experiences to designing packaging for home textiles.
