Role: Logistics Coordinator, Scout Studio
Dates: Sept - Dec 2017
Scout Studio is Northeastern University’s premier on-campus design studio filled with many talented designers, marketers, and developers. In the Fall of 2017, I had the privilege of working with Scout to create the first ever, entirely student-led design conference, Interventions.
Concept + Role
Interventions is a space for creatives to consider the consequences of design interventions and examine the intentions of their work. My role as Logistics Director was primarily to oversee the coordination of all pre-event details. This included tasks such as location scouting, budgeting, and obtaining speakers for the event. Through extensive networking and interpersonal communication skills, I was able to secure speakers including, but not limited to, Chelsea Atwell – former Design Lead for Hillary for America, Jing Jian and Hannah Pileggi – Experience Design + Research Leads at Airbnb, and Debbie Millman – Founder + Host of Design Matters.
