Hi! I’m Joan, a textile and product designer with over ten years of experience, based in San Francisco.
I moved to San Francisco from my native St. Paul, Minnesota in 2003 to study at the Academy of Art. After four years of hard work in school as well as lots of laughs, silk- screening, & becoming an Oakland A’s baseball fan (I am now the owner of three bobbleheads- this is getting serious!), I started working at Pottery Barn & Williams-Sonoma in the design studio. There, I have produced countless designs for many of their best selling products.
I love to hand draw, do printmaking, and am proficient in Photoshop and Illustrator. I love designing great products both independently & as part of a team. I’m also passionate about local & sustainable products.
If you want to connect about product design, textile design, or debate over the best “Weird Al” song, I would love to hear from you! Just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or connect with me on LinkedIn.
Thank you for stopping by!
