I absolutely love the challenge of using lateral and logical thinking combined with data and key insights to create intuitive, engaging and interactive digital user experiences.
My ultimate goal is to produce customer-centric and user-friendly GUIs that enhance the user’s journey. I strive to continuously improve, design according to best practices and web standards and hope to positively influence consumer behaviour.
Knowledge of the latest digital trends, a desire to push the boundaries and a passion for harmonious design has ensured my success in the competitive digital landscape.

I want to let you know that Vivi and Marissa were incredible today getting art direction across the line for iPhone. These ladies especially Marissa led the entire team all day from very early, managing over 42 pages of assets and having people tugging at them all day and they were so gracious and professional it really needs to be commended from ELT.
As we all know we beat Telstra out the gate, thanks to the design team, this will put us in great stead to give our customers great value and a terrific online experience… well done Marissa and Vivi.— Ifca Dragicevic, Digital Project Manager, Optus
I had the pleasure of having Marissa in my design team for over 2 years. Marissa is a thoughtful designer who gives every brief careful consideration and has a solid rationale for her approach.
Marissa has a delicate touch and her designs are elegant and sophisticated. She always has a digital first approach…
Quick to grasp our goals, objectives and target market, Marissa is extremely creative in interpreting our company’s requirements. Always considerate of our needs and objectives, she is able to capture our essence in an artistic, quirky and carefully crafted style. She is quick to adapt, communicates her ideas clearly and is task and goal orientated.— Susanne Majlath, Director, InsideOutside Design
