David Krawczyk is an industrial designer of intuitive products that encourage consumers to have a better understanding of the resources required for a product's function. His designs work to increase consumer awareness on a product's impact in today's "thow-away" society. He provides unique solutions to everyday complications, finding inspiration through the deconstruction of existing systems. By breaking down design, he identifies areas of improvement, and then reworks these methods to design innovative solutions. David works in Brooklyn, New York. He holds a Bachelor of Industrial Design from Pratt Institute.
