Hi, I’m Jenni Lee, a communication designer. I’m currently a product designer at The New York Times in the Story Formats team.

Previously, I was with the Columbia School of Journalism’s Brown Institute for Media Innovation as a product designer in the Local News Lab

I value reader experience, writing, and culture. I like capturing scenes and synthesizing information to create narratives with style.
