Original Penguin is a retro revival lifestyle brand. The product ranges from apparel, accessories, socks, footwear, fragrance, and active sportswear apparel.
I began at Original Penguin as the women's technical design intern while attending art college. After my graduation, I was hired full time as the assistant designer to men's design team. Thereafter, I was promoted to Designer. Under my supervision, sell thru of the casual woven shirts grew 22% over the 1st year. I designed new items into replenishment programs that became core fashion basics earning roughly 35% of total sales.
I worked closely with design director on development of design and marketing concepts, as well as
supervised and delegated of daily activities of the assistant designers and interns.
