Emily Haasch

Emily Haasch is a designer, artist, and tiny human. She physically resides in San Francisco. Her thoughts digitally reside on Twitter.

With roots in collage and object design, she enjoys cultivating a practice that is interdisciplinary in regard to both medium and purpose. Lately, Emily has been interested in the intersection of design and the systems it both supports and resists. By questioning these themes, she has slowly been initiating digital and IRL projects to make sense of what it means to be a designer in 2015.

Emily graduated with a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2013. By day, she is currently a designer for an art company in NYC (Electric Objects).

Too Many Side Projects

We'll talk about certain projects referencing the intersection of design, the Internet, social dynamics, and humor, and how design can make light of interesting or consumerist behavior through the use of specific aesthetics and manners. Many of these projects I initiate come to fruition through the web, although most, if not all, have a social or interactive component involving whomever chooses to participate.

Tiffany Chu

Tiffany is a designer, researcher, and urbanist. She's currently a co-founder at Remix, helping cities around the world plan better public transit. Previously, Tiffany was a Fellow at Code for America, launched the UX practice at Zipcar, worked as an innovation consultant at Continuum, and wrote for Dwell. She has a background in architecture and urban planning from MIT, and likes bicycles, plants, and getting lost.
