Design Snacks Series | Framing a Design Problem
How do designers turn challenges into opportunities? Join designers Amanda Astorga and Ángel López for a hands-on workshop that explores optimistic approaches for solving systemic issues. Participants will work collaboratively, enhance their design literacy skills, and build a network with other participants who are interested in exploring innovative tools to use in their own practices, classrooms, or organizations.

Amanda Astorga is a strategic designer from Santiago, Chile. Her biggest passion is working alongside communities in ways that empower people and foster their participation. She has facilitated workshops with students to co-design graphic murals for a pediatric public hospital, strategized approaches to help parents to talk about sexual health with their young children, and built leadership capacity with female social leaders. Astorga holds a bachelor’s degree in design and a master’s of fine arts degree in transdisciplinary design from Parsons, The New School.

Ángel López is a design strategist, artist, and educator based in Brooklyn, NY. He is able to frame problems and help teams visualize them before solving them. His work is focused on the impact of human welfare, civil rights and the marginalization of people. He uses human-centered approaches for models of equity and inclusion. López’s work scales from grassroots organizations to international agencies, delivering outcomes of data collection and visual communication. He holds a bachelor’s of fine arts degree in communication design and a master’s of fine arts degree in transdisciplinary design.
