HI THERE IM NGUYEN (pronounced - ‘new-in’)

I am a freelance designer, tennis fan, husband, and proud father.

  • I have been fortunate enough to have my work be awarded and featured on FWA, Awwwards, Smashing Magazine, abduzeedo, Desktop magazine and MADC Awards.
  • I believe in working hard, doing good work and being nice.
  • Having the freedom to choose what you do everyday is true wealth and success.
  • I have a Corgi named Butters and she is a rad dog.

I have been designing professionally for 10+ years. How I got swept up in all of this was a bit of luck but also alot of hard work and passion. Design has opened so many doors for me and has given me a very happy and fulfilling life. I am only 29 30 years old so there is still so much to learn - and there are plenty of people more talented, knowledgable and wiser than I am. But my experiences are mine alone and I’ve learnt a few things along the way. Things that I would love to share with you.

Prior to being a full time freelancer I was the Creative Director of a wonderful agency called Bliss Media here in Melbourne. But I eventually resigned because I wasn't excited about what I was doing anymore. Verse was born out of my desire to do something different, to share my experiences about design, freelancing and entrepreneurship. I will aim to be as transparent as possible and I will share with you all of my triumphs as well as all the fuck ups. I am putting together a small team of some of the best designers and developers to create useful products for the digital design community. You can view the manifesto here.
