I had the pleasure of being a student in Holly’s New Design Firms class at Parsons in 2015. While in class Holly demonstrated engaging passion & energy for both her students and all things related to design. Her knowledge and insight about past, present and future design firms and leadership is truly visionary. As an industrial designer, Holly made me keenly aware by incorporating and embracing new technologies, one could remove the physical limits of a design studio or location and enable innovation, at any time. In other words, she made me cognizant that design innovation has no borders. To me, this was a profound revelation relating to the evolution of future design agencies. As a result, I am now an e-consultant pursuing business+design innovation as a virtual design studio (VDS) online. Holly is a remarkable, transformative force in the world of design!
