Wendy was also an adjunct instructor at Cooper Union where she taught a course on translating 2D collages into web experiences with code.

Throughout the years, her work has been featured in The New York Times, nominated as a finalist for New York Design Awards, shown in Hong Kong Design Centre's deTour exhibition and published in the international magazine TLmag.
