Marissa Epstein, CPACC, has been drinking the design Kool-Aid ever since she was a kid in sunny south Florida.
Her work has run the gamut, from packaging big brands like Wrigley and Kraft (Macaroni & Cheese) to creating thoughtful websites and experiences for lean startups. Marissa brings a passion for responsive design systems and obsessive attention to detail to every project. Before joining the Lullabot team, Marissa wore many hats as an Art Director for an interactive creative agency: ideation, marketing, branding, information architecture, UI/UX design, managing a design team, and project management.
Since joining Lullabot in 2014, Marissa has contributed to user experience, design, and content strategy projects for such clients as Georgia Public Broadcasting, Digital Services Georgia (Georgia.Gov), Harvard Library, Pantheon, and the Grammys. She approaches work from both a strategist and designer perspective, leading teams from facilitating workshops to uncover goals for organizations to crafting an accessible, reusable design system for developers. She also balances supporting the Design & Strategy teams' internal projects like creating content, standardizing processes, and organizing workshops around shared goals.
Marissa currently resides in a Cape Cod home in Providence, RI, with her partner, Nick, and her humongous dog, Elwood. Besides embarking on adventures in her tiny city (probably in the pursuit of good food), Marissa can be found at design events, concerts, reading non-fiction, and collecting toys. Unless there is a worldwide pandemic going on, that is.
