Celine Nguyen

Design historian (in training) and former digital product designer. I read nonstop. I’m very quiet online and rarely tweet. I spend most of my time on Goodreads, Are.na, and Pinterest. I (sometimes) post to Instagram.


I'm very excited about

Decolonization in design history / Collective generosity and care / Interdisciplinary endeavors / Technology and ethics / The future of labor / The beauty of everyday objects / The joy of a good groupchat / Literally anything Rei Kawakubo does / Reading books, not feeds / Calligraphy / The resurgence of physical crafts in a digital age

so feel free to talk to me about these things!

Right now

Doing a MA in History of Design with the V&A Museum/Royal College of Art in London. Designing for Logic Magazine. Thinking about climate change in the physical and digital realm.
