Natalia Allen

Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series 2011

The MFA in Applied Craft and Design hosts designer and surf enthusiast Natalia Allen for a lecture for the 2011-2012 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

Natalia Allen brings her enthusiasm for surfing to entrepreneurship, combining green and tech to create innovative styles using environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing processes. In 2005, she founded the influential and fast-growing design firm Design Futurist. She received the highly coveted Parsons “Designer of the Year Award,” a title she shares with Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler. She frequently lectures around the globe sharing her expert ideas on sustainable design.
