  • Product Designer- Senior Thesis


    Hi Dominic, My name is Leah Waldman, and I am a senior in the product design department at Parsons the New School for Design in New York. I am currently working on my thesis, which is to revitalize the bone craft of India in order to provide fair wages to the artisans as well as allow for a product that is 100% environmentally sustainable. At the moment I am thinking about possibly developing architectural panels. I am writing to you for two reasons- 1. to get feedback and discuss my ideas/project, and 2. part of the thesis requirement is to work with a non-profit organization that will help us either with research in regards to obtaining information about the problem that we are trying to solve, or helping us market our product- I was wondering if you knew of any non-profit organizations in the New York area that do such work. Also, I thought that your blog,, was very interesting and corresponded to my thesis mission, which is why I thought it would be beneficial to speak with you. I can provide more information about my project if you would be interested in discussing your ideas and mine...

    I look forward to hearing back from you.
