Hired by the award-winning design studio Birsel + Seck, I worked with the SCAN foundation to envision, brand, and design a new venture studio. We called it Alive Ventures. The studio creates and funds brands with the mission of making companies that help older adults love, work, and live better.
We were supposed to go live at SXSW 2020 as one of the most hyped events. Due to COVID, we took everything online and launched a series of talks with design and start-up experts, including Ayse Birsel, Don Norman, Stefan Sagmeister, Robert Wong, Greg Isenberg, and others.
6 months later, the CEO (John Zapolski) brought me to help build the design team.
