Nikki Sylianteng

I'm a multi-disciplinary product designer. Born in LA, raised in Manila, and based in New York.

I'm the type of designer who learns by doing. I do just enough research, prototype early and often, and iterate quickly. A few of my projects include reinventing the parking sign at To Park or Not To Park, cataloging a pattern library of the physical world at City Objects, and running a virtual pop-up book club for The Death and Life of Great American Cities called Reading Jane. I enjoy mentoring designers and guest crit at the Parsons School of Design and Columbia Graduate School of Architecture.

Currently, I'm Senior Product Designer at Kinetic, a startup building a safety device for factory workers.
