Marble Surface

We are excited to announce "Design For All" in partnership with Target has premiered on HULU. This trailer is just a snapshot of what the full documentary sheds light on. This is how we stop the cycle of exclusion. I can't wait to hear your thoughts! I love how the producers framed our stories.

It was my pleasure to contribute to Kat Holmes' Mismatch book, which catapulted a deep dive for me into how design became part of my life. We titled my chapter #WithNotFor, and it's been an amazing journey watching this phrase take flight across the design world. Design plays such a huge part in our lives through the products we use, self care through fashion, as well as the built environment.
