Pearlyn was born in Hong Kong as a British National Overseas citizen—sadly, no British accent. Since she was nine years old, she knew she wanted to be a designer.

Prior to working with cultural institutions at Local Projects, she worked with leaders from IBM, Ogilvy, and XQ Super Schools through SYPartners as well as with a range of brands at Wolff Olins. Her recent project that imagines an exhibition for musician and producer Brian Eno received an honors award from the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD). 
In her past life, she designed features on Ellsworth Kelly, Wolfgang Tillmans, and Francesco Vezzoli for Whitewall Magazine; co-organized a TEDx conference at ArtCenter; and designed windows for Guess?, Inc.

Today, she believes in a future where the digital space and the physical world interplay seamlessly. Wayfinding devices worn on shoulders; smart rooms that detect the collective mood of those inside it; oscillating walls that breathe fresh air into buildings. Basically, anything beyond the screen.

She’s currently a visual experience designer at Local Projects in New York.
