Chronicle Books Product Design Fellowship
My first year of high school, I taught myself to screen print from the pamphlet attached to a bottle of emulsion. One year and a half ago, I taught myself to screen print with light-up ink from digital journal articles. Learning to print from two types of publications influenced my approach to experimenting with materials.
Like journal articles, I'm interested in experiences that provide copious amounts of information.
A critique of those articles, unlike the DIY micro-publication that began my print journey, is those articles do not allow kids (or anyone) a tangible starting point to learn about wicked
new inventions that shape the future.
As the Chronicle Product Design Fellow, I would create magical, interactive, and manipulable circuits on paper and cloth surfaces. Additionally to developing communicative projects for novel printing techniques, I will work with teammates around me to develop and deliver memorable experiences through products.

Carrie Furnaces (2016)
Carrie Furnaces Event Space is a study in spacial design, with a focus on multi-purpose usability. Furniture and lighting can be arranged in a space to help facilitate various activities.
The project also taught me to work in a team to develop a concept, and make design choices based on a set of objectives.
Assemblage (Senior Design Show)-
Transition Design Exhibit (2016)
As part of the CMU senior design show, I helped create explanations about our senior studio project, Practicing Transition Design. The post-it note frameworks were group work from teams in the class, The orange posters highlighted sections of the class' work and explained its context. Featuring others work is important to building a community of understanding, but additionally important is explaining the work within a cohesive context.

These posters show a mixture of branding, surveys, and communications in public
spaces. Surveys, in addition to posters are important, so users of a space can easily
provide feedback or insights.
