Malena Hansen comes from a multi-disciplinary design background and was exposed to a wide range of creative processes in her education. With a particular affinity for signage and wayfinding, she takes an interest in the intersection of typography, graphics, and the built environment.

variety, connection, empathy.

Malena received her BA in Design from UC Davis with an emphasis in graphic and exhibition design. Her interest in both the technical skills and creative restraints of design allow her to balance her passion for art with her desire for functionality and purpose in products. Learning Adobe software opened up a new mode of expression, as she learned to take her handcrafted skills to the digital world. Exposure to the museum industry while traveling through the UK changed how Malena thinks about space and her surroundings and she believes that working beside architects will teach her more about ways we interact with the world.
