About JoHanna:

I use design as a way of exploring the world, getting to the root of a problem with an emphasis on empathy. My background is in industrial design (BFA from RIT)  and I worked most recently at a company in Seattle WA designing technical gear for wildland firefighters.


As a designer I am passionate about working on projects that have a focus on community, sustainability and user centered design solutions. My process centers on examining a problem then finding an empathy -focused solution with the end user always in mind. 

Personal interests primarily involve working with my hands in various ways to solve problems and create things. I love hiking, reading, working on personal projects, hosting dinner parties, gardening, camping, and recently I’ve been getting into roller derby, for more on this check out my archive of work!
