We’re a humble and passionate design studio committed to telling stories and developing a strong foundation for deeply-rooted causes.

Designing Global Impact by Merging Creativity and Empowering Missions

I founded Studio Humankind to specialize in ethical storytelling for organizations tackling complex social issues around the globe. I believe design can and should inspire critical thought and positive action. As a community-centered design studio, we are committed to diversity and inclusion, with the goal of creating a more equitable, just world. We are working to create change by sharing stories, voices, and missions that need to be heard across cultures. I strive to help others see the world and be inspired by humankind through heart, harmony, and authenticity.

Together we have the opportunity to create brave spaces where all voices can be heard, biases challenged and solutions arrived at together. This work is unending. I remain steadfast in my dedication to use our collective power and platforms to dismantle inequity, promote diversity and inclusion, and together, design a better world.

Why humankind?

Our work represents the stories of movers and shakers, risk takers, activists, business owners, and nonprofit leaders who are turning ideas inside out and industry relationships upside down.



We believe that now more than ever, we need to work together long-term through community to achieve our goals and save our people, planet, and future.

We believe there are audiences that would care if only they knew. We believe that creating points of connection across continents and between communities, artisans, farmers, and leaders will make all of the difference.

We believe that storytelling is the quickest way to empathy and action. We believe that there are good people doing good work, that nobody’s ever heard of.
