According to predictions by U.S. Consensus Bureau, "By the year 2020, the United States will be a "Minority Majority Country". We wanted to create a platform that help increase global awareness and acceptance of different cultures among young students in order to create understanding in our increasingly diverse communities.
After an extensive research and countless interviews with parents, teachers, and educational experts, we developed the Global Seedizens. At Global Seedizens, we deliver multicultural education lessons through three various channels: after-school programs, curriculum toolboxes, and summer camps.
Completed at Babson College, 2016

We were privileged to receive a type workshop with the renowned type designer Jean Françoise Porchezin February 2012. The goal was to develop a typeface consisting upper and lower case within a week.

Autism Awareness Video
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a range of complex disorders characterized by a mixture of social impairments, communication difficulties, and so on. This video shows aspects of autism disorder through behaviors as repetitive pattern of actions, highly focused nature, and extreme sensitivity to physical touch. The main character, Jimmy, focuses highly on building his blocks regardless of his friend calling him. The blocks are a metaphor of a invisible wall Jimmy builds between him and the surroundings. The video is depicted using stop-motion and hand-drawn characters to reflect a childlike nature, which is when the disorder occurs (around age of three), in turn reminds people to start developing awareness when the subject is still at a young age.
In today's fast-paced world, exploration is absent and there are no effective methods for discovery of new places people might enjoy.
There is also a missing component of personalization and social interaction of sharing these places.
With Spotter, we provide our audience with:
- a new way to discover your world.
- a social platform built around sharing and saving special places.
