Evalina Patiño is a New York City based industrial designer pursuing a degree in product design at the Parsons School of Design. She is primarily interested in social issues and using industrial design as a way to understand complex societal problems. To her, industrial design has always been bigger than itself and a tool to do things that supersede the limits of what is considered design. Evalina’s creative process is mainly guided by relentless iteration – lead by the belief that through repetition she can achieve the best design because it gives her the opportunity to explore all the formal opportunities and limitations.
