Creating messages with design

“What inspires me to create is a constant need to challenge myself and also to problem solve. Being a designer or creative almost becomes like a lifestyle because you’re constantly surrounded by challenges and beautiful things and ugly things and you just — you’re always observing the world.”

My latest episode of ‘People in America’ tells the story of artist and designer Zarela Mosquera. She has been communicating with all types of people through public art and design. Her latest exhibit, “The Walkway,” explores the physical and emotional effects of street harassment. Listen as she takes you through her journey of how she became an industrial designer.
