I’m Jessie Kate Bui, but you can call me Jessie Kate. My Mom thought it sounded like a fashion brand when she named me and I’ve signed my name Jessie Kate ever since ;)
I’m a Storytelling Coach based in Los Angeles, CA. I also project directed and co-authored Talking Threads: costume design for animation, games, and illustration. Which led me to co-teaching History of Fashion at Art Center and creating online costume design mentorships before I eventually launched my newest course Story Medium.
I help visual storytellers all over the world use powerful psychology and design tools to articulate their emotional journeys into transformative visual narratives.
Always fascinated with the story behind design, I found myself taking on an epic costume design project for over 7 years...It was an amazing experience but my creative transformation wasn’t over yet.
I became a visual storyteller to share what helped me create a stronger sense of self trust and self love. By creating and designing a completely original story inspired by my own unique struggles and insights, I learned that visual storytelling has the power to help us overcome stigma and define a new sense of self. So I created the Parallax Method. Just the tip of the iceberg of more exciting things to come.
