Shirley Rodriguez


I am a quirky and outgoing impact designer raised in Barranquilla, Colombia. I spent my teens in Miami, Florida where I attended Design and Architecture Senior High and found my passion for art and design. After the Haitian earthquake in 2010, we were tasked with creating disaster relief products. It was then that I discovered that designers could make a difference. Since then, creating positive social impact has driven my love for product design. I have spent my ArtCenter career trying to solve big problems because I truly believe human-centered design and design thinking can create a better world for everyone.
