good design

is inclusive design.

My name is Olga Saadi and I am currently pursuing my master’s degree as a Design Impact student at Stanford University. Prior to this, I earned a BS in Industrial Engineering with a minor in Entrepreneurship in PUC-Rio.

 

Growing up in Brazil and seeing the power of creativity applied in low-resource environments has had a large influence on my core values as a designer. For me, design is an active tool for developing impactful solutions that are in conversation with their contexts.

 

This belief has informed many of my projects -- which you can learn more and explore in the website -- and is what ultimately brought me to Stanford, where I continue to work on making design an accessible tool for change.
