Herman Miller Internship 2021 ︎︎︎ Various
Collection of work from my internship with Herman Miller

Herman Miller is a global furniture brand made most popular by their authored design work with Ray and Charles Eames, George Nelson, and Alexander Girard. I interned as part of the Global Creative Studio team, working on a variety of projects at the time of the Knoll + Herman Miller merger.

Social Media Audit
Evaluate current social media presence through a designer’s lens with an emphasis on Instagram stories.

The Instagram account of Herman Miller lacked basic style guides which caused for stories to be done only in a series of one-off makes. By dedicating simple rules in regards to color, type, and grid, I was able to create an easy system for designers to use moving forward.

Diversity in Design Collaborative
Design and strategize an event concept for the DID Collaborative to reach college-aged black creatives.

The Diversity in Design Collaborative was initiated in June 2021 to foster systemic change by increasing diversity and improving conditions for Black creatives across the design industry. MillerKnoll was one of the founding partners, and put young, eager minds to the task on creating its first ever concept event.

OE1 T-Shirt
Design custom shirt to celebrate the OE1 collection and gift to our collaborators.

The OE1 workspace collection from Herman Miller was created in collaboration with Industrial Facility, a product design firm in London. As a thank you to all who worked on this long project, a shirt was designed with the workspace lineup in mind.
Design Yard Screensaver
Design and animate ambient backgrounds for all Design Yard Screens

The Design Yard is the home of the design headquarters and manufacturing planning for Herman Miller. Recently updated in early 2021, the multi-building, open-concept office needed a fresh background to serve the many digital screens added to the space and match the super graphics designed by Kelly O’Hara.
