Annie Nguyen is Putting Herself on the Map!

Linkin Park's new LP designed by Annie Nguyen
After graduating from UH with her BFA, Annie Nguyen has been on force in the graphic design world.  After graduation, the Honolulu native moved her talent to Los Angeles where she is currently the art director at Machine Shop, a creative art studio in L.A. that works with top artists.  Machine Shop started in 2011 and the company has taken off in the past two years, now working with top names such as Linkin Park. 

Nguyen has had an interest in music and design from a young age.  While she was at UH she was involved with KTUH and launched Space&Sound with TravisTokuyama, Joe Gosalvez, and Alika Pfaltzgraff. Nguyen is still the creative director of Honolulu-based creative art company Space&Sound despite her current mainland location.

At Machine Shop, Nguyen has been able to blend her two passions together in a creative explosion of talent.  Her latest works include the graphic design of Linkin Park’s new LP, as well as the design covers of some of the band’s singles.   She has also worked with Musicfor Relief, which is a charity organization that provides aide to environmental programs and disaster relief programs.  Nguyen has also applied her talents to 686 Technical Apparel, which is a high-tech clothing company specializing in cold weather environments.  Nguyen worked with her creative director, Rickey Kim, and artist, producer, rapper Mike Shinoda to design a jacket for 686.  Take a look at Annie Nguyen’s blog for more samples of her work.
