Prior to joining Adobe, Vanessa B. Dewey, worked in house at Mattel, as the first Lead in Creative and Development Experience. As a member of the Mattel HR team, she defied stereotypes by bringing a creative, human-centered design approach to a traditionally corporate department. Some of her roles included providing educational opportunities for 600+ creatives, overseeing company-wide initiatives and curating a speaker series that brought inspiring design leaders to inspire Mattel talent.
Since leaving Mattel, Vanessa joined Adobe as a Sr. Product Marketing Manager on the new Adobe Creative Jam Enterprise team. This role allows Vanessa to continue supporting her love of the in-house creative community, but at a larger scale and across diverse verticals both domestically and internationally.
Throughout her career, Vanessa has been obsessed with three things: cultures, connections, and communities. She continually looks both outward and inward to foster inspiration, forge creative communities and encourage risk-taking, curiosity and bold action.
Vanessa serves as the Co-Chair of AIGA National InHouse INitiative Steering Committee and is on the LA Design Festival Board.
