Narrative, interaction and design are part of my vision to create that extra layer of understanding and connection into the world.

Hey I’m Josephine! An Art Director and XR/3D Artist dedicated to pushing the boundaries of creativity through experimentation with cutting-edge technology. I love using Snapchat Lenses to push what’s possible in digital fashion and XR experiences. I’m constantly playing around with new workflows to find ways we can completely transform how we express ourselves. I’d love to discuss how we can make your latest idea a reality!

Lens Lab Q&A

  • Q: Do we have to create our own assets?

    But remember, go for it and create your own unique image!
