Alexis is studying Industrial Design and Graphic Design at the University of Illinois at Chicago. As a double major, they have been fortunate to study a range of design skills and methodologies from some of Chicago’s notable design practitioners. Alexis' approach to design is a marriage of these two worlds, resulting in an interdisciplinary, human-centered design process. After graduation, Alexis is looking forward to new opportunities within design research and service design as a way to grow their passion for empathy-driven design. Outside of school, Alexis enjoys working on self-initiated projects that allow them to collaborate with friends and mentors.
