Vanessa Dewey

Lead, Development & Creative Experiences
Learning Lounge // Mattel, Inc.


Vanessa is a Downtown Los Angeles based art director, cultural disruptor, in-house and gender gap advocate. After almost going into the Foreign Service, Vanessa’s affinity for color and problem solving led her to Graphic Design. After earning her BFA and dabbling in diverse design verticals, she arrived at Mattel. Over her 8 years at Mattel, Vanessa designed for iconic IP and licensed brands. Not one content on being confined to a cube, Vanessa consistently looks beyond to create impact. Outside Mattel, she continues this drive: she is on the AIGA National Inhouse INitiative Steering Committee, the board of directors for LA Design Festival, and the inaugural committee for Ladies Get Paid in Los Angeles. And, one might say she has a slight obsession with coffee.
