When Firebelly first contacted me to interview for a freelance design position, I was skeptical. I had recently moved back from Copenhagen, where I was an Art Director’s Assistant at INDEX: Design to Improve Life. After living in one of the most progressive design-thinking countries in the world, all I wanted to do was move away from Indiana. However, when I interviewed with Firebelly I found that one of the most progressive agencies had been right here all along.
I learned about INDEX: Design to Improve Life from an instructor at school. They had mentioned the non-profit organization after I expressed interest in using design for change. When I heard about the Design to Improve Life Summer School in Seoul, I jumped at the opportunity.
