Chantell Marlow (she/her) has spent the past decade solving creative design problems for both corporate and consumer markets as well as teaching design at the collegiate level. Her approach to design has always centered around the questions, “How do we make products, spaces, and places that ACTUALLY work for the people who use and/or inhabit them? What problems are taking the joy away from their experience? How can those problems be designed out of the equation?” As an advocate for inclusive, equitable, intentional design, she leans into collaboration and iteration as tools for progress and innovation. Chantell is skilled at leading both learners and teams, as well as planning, communicating, and executing complex design systems.
