In our series of special weeks, we were honored to welcome this time Patricia Moore to our studio.
Patricia Moore has been recognized by ID Magazine as one of the “40 most socially conscious designers” in the world, and is looking to a shining career as Industrial Designer and Gerontologist.
Not only did she start her career by working with Raymond Loewy, but also worked for some of the prestigious companies such as AT&T, Boeing, General Electric and NASA to name a few. Confronting us with the very important questions: Who do we design for?! and “What is old?”
Patricia successfully kicked of a very interesting week of confrontation and debates. Encouraging us to talk to our customers during the process of design rather than assuming what is right for them, to be empathic and doing sound research, was a very helpful lesson and reminded us that we chose to design not only for ourselves but also for people when we decided to become designers.
Patricia Moore曾被美国ID杂志评为全球“40位最具社会意识的设计师”之一，并且作为一名工业设计师及老年病研究专家，她的个人事业也相当辉煌。通过与 Raymond Loewy的合作共事，她开创了自己的职业生涯。
