Hi! My name’s Amélie Lamont. I’m a grad student running by amélie. studio, a creative practice focused on community-based art projects. Current projects include Arcana, The Guide to Allyship, and People of Craft.
I’m on a mission to help weary designers think about design beyond “make it pop.” Why? Because we design and share products that impact real people. Check out my list of recommended reads for designers.
Your favorite bearded and/or veteran design thought leader (lol) telling you how to do everything in your life.
You, critically thinking about who gets to be a designer and unraveling the traditional definition of design.
In my writing, I explore these ideas at the intersection of design and culture, while asking what design is.
If you learn to think critically about design while considering others’ humanity, you can facilitate the sort of positive impact you wish existed instead of waiting.
Sign up for my newsletter and let’s explore together. ✊🏾💖
