Whitney Hopkins
Over the years, I have cultivated many interests, which allows me to see the world through my multi-faceted experience. I am a designer, strategist, and maker working in both architecture and product design. Overall, I am driven by exploring how design can benefit society and the environment. I mix and match my multi-disciplinary skills to better inform my designs, aiming for the best results for both the users and the planet.
The front-end of design and strategy are my biggest strength. I shine in needfinding and defining the constraints that drive a well-considered project founded on various human needs and environmental limitations. Moving beyond general professional knowledge, I have worked for over a decade building specialty knowledge in biomimicry and gender.
I have won numerous awards for my projects, which include products in healthcare, housewares, and electronics as well as residential and institutional buildings. My success is due to diligent work founding designs on the needs of people and with clear consideration of the environment.
