Our international design series continues here on Revision Path, and our next stop is Zurich, Switzerland! Meet Courtney Pinter, a multidisciplinary creative who currently works as a senior creative at world-renowned flavor company Givaudan. Courtney is originally from Chicago, Illinois, but has been in Zurich for several years now, so I was really excited to learn more about the Swiss design scene from her.

We started with a brief look at what it’s like to design at a company like Givaudan, and she told me how her previous work at Tampico helped prepare her for this work. We talked about the change in design sensibilities due to location, the biggest challenges she’s faced since moving there, and Courtney shared some powerful advice for designers who want to follow in her footsteps. Courtney is proof that instead of looking for examples in others, you can be the example in your own life!

Oen Michael Hammonds, a designer, mentor and lead facilitator at IBM Design, has designed across the gamut — advertising, graphic, interactive and environmental. At IBM Design, Oen works with internal teams to develop design thinking among executives, software development teams, and sales.

First, we talked about design thinking — what it is, how it’s used, and why it’s important. From there, our conversation focused on Oen’s journey as a designer, the importance of AIGA to his career, and what excites him about design. What a great way to end out the year!
