A Pittsburgh Start-Up


I worked as a designer for Thread- a small start-up based in Pittsburgh during my senior year at CMU. Thread’s mission is to collect, process and transform trash in Haiti into useful stuff people love.

As the sole designer in the team, I owned various projects like infographics, presentations, client pitches, and an annual report and helped the company set new brand/styling standards. I created a visual system that incorporated handwritten typography/ sketches, alluding the genuine mission and process of making fabric from recycled bottles.
