A natural problem-solver, Lanaé has utilized her understanding of human-centric design, technology, culture and people to turn challenges into measurable successes for Fortune 500s, startups, NGOs, government agencies, and politicians. In 2008, she became the Creative Director at Virtcom Consulting, a diversity consulting firm and The World Diversity Leadership Summit, an international diversity conference. While leading various design projects for global brands such as HSBC, Arrow Electronics, Santander Bank and Disney, she also earned her certificate in project management.
Lanaé then brought her skillsets to LivePerson, a global software company, where she furthered her UI/UX, social media and marketing knowledge working with clients such as Verizon, Sony, Microsoft, ShopNBC, and AT&T. She also initiated the launch of a tool to empower the company’s Account Management team and alleviate strain on creative resources.
In 2010, Lanaé forayed into content and media as Editor and Creative Director at Sinuous Magazine, a multicultural exploration of art, entertainment, fashion and social issues. As she shaped the publication’s identity and brought in millions of readers, she forged partnerships with brands such as MassMutual, Summerstage, Heineken, Marriott, Jergen’s, The BET Awards, EXPRESS, Budweiser’s Made In America Festival, and PopSugar.
As she continues to fuse her design expertise and project management skills, Lanaé also shares her artistry through prints, apparel, home décor, and stationery featuring her original artwork.
