Hi, I’m Hannah.


I love when images go along perfectly with a beat and the way my hair looks when it’s humid out. I am currently inspired by ambient electronic music, unconventional ceramics, alternative tattoos, and experimental nail art. I’m a junior in the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University. I connect most naturally to design work which pushes boundaries - both conceptually and aesthetically.

I’m motivated by projects grounded in liberation work, and projects which operate within an anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist, and anti-colonial framework. I’d like to design systems which increase equity in elegant, ingenious, and joyful ways.

Design influences every aspect of our daily lives. I am continually driven by the power of design, which is why I believe it equally as important that as designers we educate and situate ourselves on the designed historical systems which currently structure our world.
