Angie is the business director of Jagger&Jones.
She is based on the famous designer Jessica Walsh who co-founded a design firm called Sagmeister & Walsh Inc. with Steffan Sagmeister in New York City. Jessica is an American graphic designer, art director and illustrator, and a partner at creative agency Sagmeister & Walsh. What do you do if you’re offered a well paid, even half-decent job straight out of art school? In an uncertain economy and a landscape of unpaid graduate labor, most would say that you take it. But that’s not what she did. After turning down a graphic design job with Apple for around $100k per year, Walsh instead took a three-month internship with Paula Scher at Pentagram.
She then worked as an associate art director at Print magazine and had design work and illustrations featured in various books, magazines and newspapers. In 2010, Walsh met Stefan Sagmeister. He looked through her portfolio and offered her a job at his design studio, Sagmeister Inc. In June 2012, after two years at the firm, Walsh was made partner, at age 25.
The other reference for her personality is Miranda Priestly, the powerful editor of a fashion magazine of The Devil Wears Prada.
She is beside Yu the character with more interactions in the game, so we were very careful not only in her personality but also the full image of the character. So we asked a fashion designer and MBI partner Dahfne Paz to make an image studio of the character.
