At MassArt, I discovered that Industrial Design is no longer 'traditional product design.' The design industry has boomed and the lines between Graphic Design, Industrial Design, and Experience Design have blurred. I find myself being drawn to those blurry intersection points. I am most interested in design strategy, brand development, and designing for human interactions. These elements of design excite me because they usually are the aspects that pose big, open-ended questions and make key decisions fit together like puzzle pieces.
I thoroughly enjoy learning more about people, the things they do, and the challenge of creating solutions for their problems. Having a background in Industrial Design allows me to utilize my user-centered design toolbox to create solutions that can range from physical touchpoints to emotional experiences depending on the user's needs.
