Design influences everything around us. It’s something I’ve said on this podcast dozens of times, but social impact designer and researcher Carmela Wilkins is the kind of designer who really embodies this tenet in her work.
We started our conversation with a look at Carmela’s work at NYC-based design communications firm A/B Partners, and she talked about how she got started there and the types of projects she’s able to work on. She also shared her globetrotting adventures throughout Europe during her college years, spoke on how she lets her ambition fuel her success via “the obtainables”, and talked about the importance of reanalyzing our connection to food and the environment during this current time. Carmela is a true citizen of the world who thinks deeply about the connected world around us — something we should all strive to be!
