Patti Vongmalaithong

I’ve been working for Target Corporation as a product designer for the past 5 years. I’ve designed collections and curated trend stories for Target’s different businesses, which include their high profile “Home Design Event,” trend runs (the aisle that defines seasonal home decor trends using products such as furniture, toss pillows, mirrors, wall art, etc.) and currently lighting. So yes, you can stop in at your local Target store and pick up my latest designs for your lighting needs!

In addition, I’ve worked with Target’s external limited time designers like Thomas O’Brien and John Derian. The design philosophies I learned while at VCU are not limited to just interior design, but apply to many different creative roles. I’ve interned at a design build firm and a residential interior design studio before finding my passion in product design.
