ABOUT

Hello, I'm Haleigh! A recent graduate of the University of Houston with a degree in Industrial Design and a minor in Studio Art. My academic journey has been a transformative experience, nurturing my growth as a designer. My primary focuses lie in conceptual, sustainable, and furniture design, while my passion for the fine arts, particularly sculpture and ceramics, adds a unique dimension to my creative perspective.

To me, design is synonymous with idealism. It's a powerful force that permeates every aspect of life, capable of forging emotional connections and fostering positive change. As designers, we hold significant influence over the world we inhabit because we actively shape it. Embracing this responsibility, I am dedicated to working with sustainable materials, contributing to a more conscientious and environmentally friendly design ethos.

My design philosophy is deeply rooted in nature and organic forms, serving as a constant wellspring of inspiration. While nature remains my primary muse, I am always open to exploring diverse influences. My design process is most exhilarating when it allows me the freedom to experiment with various form factors, envisioning them as potential functional products.

Now, as a recent graduate, I'm excited to embark on the next chapter of my design journey. My goal is to create products that transcend mere functionality, blending beauty and purpose seamlessly, all while leaving a positive impact on the world.

Thank you for visiting my portfolio, and I invite you to explore the diverse facets of my design endeavors!
