WHAT IS SHE DOING IN THAT PHOTO?
I was probably fast prototyping. This photo was taken at the Global Service Jam, where I worked with a stellar team to create a theoretical service that would make it easier for those who are interested in donating to the Syrian refugee cause act on their intentions. It was a great way to flex the creative muscle.
