Julian is a designer and artist focused on the point at which novel technology and materials touch society.  He has followed this interest to work for a wide variety of clients designing everything from space suits to fishing gear, wearable knit sensors to fashion accessories. With a background in biology, he feels at home in the lab and has created unique and patentable IP through close collaboration with science staff, developing materials aimed at market fit and manufacturability.  

His collaborative art practice Soft Monitor has shown work extensively both nationally and internationally.
Dierdre is a US-based object designer with a specialty in novel materials, industrial design, and the craft of manufacturing. She is interested in using her discipline to understand and develop meaningful, sustainable relationships between humans and products to reform and replace systems of mass production and material consumption. This focus has led her to widely varying design projects, seeking field-agnostic and radically compassionate approaches to the human experience. 

She is also a founding designer at Studio Orange.
