What’s the biggest challenge you face professionally?

Meet the 2022 Designer Dozen: Lora Child
The adoption and integration of the metaverse and/or other future tech. As tech continues to evolve over the coming years, our approach to retail design will continue to evolve as well, and we’ll need to stay agile and open-minded to changes in process, software, et cetera.

My dream project is…

…A boutique dispensary in the PNW.

The best part of my day is…

…Mid-morning when the coffee has kicked in!
