Ada Mayer

My design practice has been shaped through multi-disciplinary experimentation, collaboration, and fabrication. I’ve worked on initiatives for Nike, Facebook, Google and DreamWorks, as well as launch small business and new products in tandem. I completed a Designed Objects Masters program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where I focused on storytelling through the lens of physical things and environments.

I love making things, breaking things, and that golden moment when a process crystalizes into a solution. I spend a lot of time thinking about the intersection of our tangible and digital existence - it’s an exciting time to be a designer, and a human.
