Kristy Doan

VFX Artist, Riot Games

Inspired by the art style of the games and movies she watched with her brothers, Kristy started her career in tv and film VFX at Silicon Valley Career Technical Education. She earned a bachelor's degree from the Laguna College of Art + Design.

In 2020, Kristy was selected for a Google scholarship for Women in Games, and also won the Blizzard VFX art contest. Since then she has worked on a variety of projects, including League of Legends and Valorant at Riot Games.

Kristy is one of the most sparkling VFX artists of our time. If she can add sparkles, she will! Outside the office, Kristy loves to meet up for game jams and conventions. Also "Cute food is the best!"
