Collaborative Design transforms your curiosity into a powerfully versatile skill set for problem-solving and innovation.

Through collaborative design and design thinking in itself I use holistic systems thinking and visual communication to get my idea across. The design process encourages the messy work and to consider all stakeholders, big ideas, and human-centered design. I find connections with alternative universes, illustrative characters, and what the environment has to offer in terms of biodiversity.

What is your most memorable

experience at KCAD?

All the work we've done as a class with the Library and understanding Elise and Ben's roles. We reimagined the space with mural work, cozy seating, and hosted a charrette getting students involved in the space. We also were involved in the open house where we met with many prospective students. There was a lot of love shared.
