Stella Guan is an award-winning multidisciplinary designer, creative director, educator, speaker and entrepreneur creating beautiful, functional and storytelling-based design.
After a decade of successful career as a designer working with Fortune 500 companies, Stella took an entrepreneurial path and founded Path Unbound, a UI/UX design school providing customized educational programs for people who want to make design a career.
As an educator, she has worked as an adjunct faculty member at Fashion Institute of Technology and New York College of Technology and Lead Visual Design Instructor at General Assembly.
A furniture design enthusiast, Stella has expanded her design practice from digital to physical by launching her own multi-functional post modern furniture brand, Bezier Home.
