My name is Nifemi Ogunro. I am an industrial design student at Appalachian State. Beyond the skills that I have developed in the studio, I love applying new methods necessary to blend both product design and sustainability in my work. I am the 2016 Rigsby Scholarship recipient and served as the liaison for our IDSA student chapter. As a designer I would like to bridge the gap between design, sustainability and social issues. The idea of creating a product for the masses is a wasted concept if there is a disconnect between the designer and their understanding of a flood of differences in consumers. Design reaches a multitude of people and I hope to positively reflect the diversity found in the world through each individual piece I create.
