PanPan Vongsrirungruang

The Intern

I am so thrilled to have Pan Pan working with me in 2024. Pan Pan is a final year Design Student at Swinburne University and has a love of UX Interaction design, and Illustration. We worked together this year for 10 weeks as part of a team and she is an absolute delight, friendly and fabulous. We have touched on updating some of our designs for the newsletter etc for next year and I cant wait to see what other fabulous ideas she has for The Brownbill Effect. She also loves Lany which is a bonus and has already started working on some campaigns on day 2 and they are looking amazing.

Charlotte Tiong


Charlotte is a recent graduate of Communication Design Honours from Swinburne University. She loves fashion and photography, which is fabulous for me to be able to spoil her by introducing her to photographers work and taking her out to see some studios in action too. Charlotte and I worked together when she was in her third year at Swinburne University, so I know what a talented designer she is and how super organised as well. Charlotte also totally understands the Brownbill Effect brand and is already looking at updating the cover page on the website with new material on day one on her own…I love that. I can’t wait for all of you to meet and work with Charlotte, she is going to be another huge asset to the business.
