Sasha Ichoonsigy is a Graphic Designer at the Houston Zoo
Sasha Ichoonsigy was born in Kiev, Ukraine and moved to the U.S. with her family in 1995. She grew up in Houston, Texas, where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design at the University of Houston. While studying there, Sasha Ichoonsigy interned in-house at their Honors College, as well as at Rice University’s College of Engineering.
Sasha Ichoonsigy graduated in May 2015 and was hired by the Houston Zoo in June of that year.
The Houston Zoo is one of the few zoos in the country with an in-house design team. During her time there, Sasha Ichoonsigy has worked on a variety of projects and mediums. More than just animal information signage, the Houston Zoo graphics team supports every department at the Zoo.
From simple two-color caution signage to multi-layered, education and conservation-driven signage for an entire Asian elephant habitat expansion, Sasha has touched a little bit of everything in her two years there. This has also included invitations, programs, wayfinding and collateral for Zoo-wide events that range in duration from one day to many weeks.
Sasha is passionately curious and finds herself looking for the patterns in decisions people subconsciously make. These considerations are an integral part of her design process.
When she’s not behind her computer, you might find her at a movie theater, in a yoga class, or at home cooking and bothering her cats, Bruce and Kitten.
