Emily R. Pellerin is a writer and communications strategist with a focus on design and design communities. Originally from Austin, she’s fallen in love with the creativity and entrepreneurialism of her local New York-based product and industrial design marketplaces. While her work focuses on engaging audiences around product and the manufacturing, scalability, and showroom relationships inherent to the business of design, she is interested in expanding her understanding of the social and economic influences of this industry on the people it serves.
