Alexia Cohen is a Venezuelan-Belgian-American product designer living in New York. A graduate of the Products of Design master’s program at the School of Visual Arts, Alexia is eager to apply her design thinking abilities to question, reframe and solve a diverse set of challenges through the use of robust research practices and holistic tool set.
In her work, Alexia leverages her previous experiences as a jewelry maker and educator to compliment her passion for product design. She is keen on using the human centered design methodology to work on projects involving design for social impact, service design, business modeling, experience design, user interaction, speculative futuring and the design and development physical artifacts.
As an avid climber, cyclist and hiker Alexia focused her thesis work on exploring women’s role in the great outdoors, yielding a suite of design offerings that are meant to honor, amplify and celebrate women’s position within this space, ultimately arguing for a more inclusive and diverse outdoors sphere.
Alexia is currently looking opportunities to engage in design projects involving design research, design thinking and strategy, as well prototyping and testing for projects that enable us to live in a more inclusive and resilient society.
