Hello world

Melanie De Cola

  • AP-GA Certified

I'm a graphic designer who finds inspiration in nature as well as buildings. In grad school I focused my thesis on biomimicry and what nature can teach us as designers. I believe that most of the problems we face as humans can be solved or eased by finding examples and processes to replicate in nature. I'm also interested in citizen involvement and how we all participate in creating a better world. Proceed and be bold.

Design heroes: Samuel Mockbee, Toyo Ito, David Adjaye, Wang Shu, James Victore
