Design Roadtrip

Our names are Sofaya, Martha, and Ben, and we are three aspiring designers looking to figure out our future paths. This summer, we're embarking on a road trip with Roadtrip Nation to interview inspiring designers around the country and learn from their advice. From architecture to engineering, arts to sustainability, we'll explore the vast possibilities in design and see what it takes to build lives doing what we love.
