Roby Isaac Is Building a More Diverse Product Design Landscape
As for diversity in the industry, Isaac believes one solution is early intervention to expose more students to design. Mannington Mills is working with the International Interior Design Association’s Design Your World Pilot Program for BIPOC students. The program is a six-week summer practicum for underserved teens designed to address barriers in design education. The program welcomed its first class of students on July 6. “I was a kid who didn’t know anything about art and design, except that I just liked to draw, and there are people in my life who were unknowingly mentors. That helped me see things differently,” Isaac says.
