This year we had a tremendously competitive set of applicants, but we are especially happy that this talented group of designers, developers, and producers will be joining our teams this summer.
Kat Sullivan – Development
Kat is currently a masters candidate at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program. She received her bachelors degree in Computer Science and Dance from Skidmore College. Before getting her masters she was a software engineer for the government contractor Charles River Analytics in Boston. Kat still freelances as a professional modern dancer and will be performing (and creating visuals) for John Zullo's RawMovement Dance Company in the Fall.
Yuanyuan Ge – Production
Yuanyuan is currently studying at Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz College of Public Policy and Management. She will graduate next spring with a masters degree in Arts Management. She previously worked at an art gallery specializing in Chinese contemporary art. Yuanyuan likes to travel; Bolivia and the South Pole are on the top of her list for the next trip.
Dana Sulit - Design
Dana is joining the Potion studio as a design intern this summer. She studies Graphic Design and Information Management & Technology at Syracuse University, with an interest in product design. At school she works with Syracuse nonprofits such as Inkululeko which strives for education equality at African schools. Dana is originally from New Jersey.

Chuan-Wei is a graduate student in Exhibition Design at FIT and will graduate in August 2015. Before attending this masters program, he worked as the graphic designer at Urban Art Studio in Taiwan for over three years. His graduate thesis project will focus on how to create an interactive navigation experience through John Falk’s audience motivator types and he aims to discover design principles that can be applied to different exhibition environments.
The Potion Design Studio crafts technology into intuitive interactive experiences. Our teams collaborate with cultural, institutional, and corporate clients and express their stories in new digital forms that educate, entertain, and delight people all around the world.
