About

Isabel Perdomo is a multi-media designer and innovative thinker with expertise in Interior, Product and Visual design. She holds a Master or Arts in Product Design from San Francisco State University (SFSU) and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interior Architecture from the University of California, Davis. She has worked with renowned designers such as Michelle Kaufmann, Jane Antonacci, Soledad AlzagaMark English and Marty Linder. Currently she is a Design Associate and Production Manager at Colour Studio, Inc. 

Isabel was born in Bogotá, Colombia and was raised in an environment of community awareness and social responsibility.

Her award winning graduate creative thesis involves design education for in rehabilitation homeless kids. Through the end of the year of 2010 and the first half on the year 2011, she developed a two month design curriculum that was delivered during summer 2011 at Fundacion Niños de los Andes in Bogota, Colombia. During Fall 2011, she reassessed her curriculum in order to make it available for other designers that may want to do something similar with other communities around the world. Her goal is at some point to create a foundation that provides scholarships for graduate students in design to deliver similar curriculums in at risk populations.

One day, she would love to teach design at a community college hoping to inspire students to have great dreams for themselves. She builds furniture, designs products, alters interior spaces, plays with graphics, explores her sewing machine, reads design and fashion online magazines, eats lots of cheese, engages in great conversations, and challenges her days with new projects and ideas.

Isabel’s blog is a journey into the human centered design world.

  1. Beautiful home page Cristina and wonderful start to your blog! I will follow your posts. Congratulations, Karen

  2. I saw the video of your project in Colombia and I found it really interesting for a person like me that is involved in design; I studied architecture, but I am currently in a transition where I want to explore different fields in design. I am interested to learn more about industrial design, like what media you use to create? And do you build the products yourself? Also, will you be making any more projects in Colombia that involves the community? I would love to be part of a project like that! Thank you.

    • Hi Andrea

      Sorry I never got back to you. I was quite busy with a new job, and I am back to dedicating some time to my blog. I used reclaimed materials that the teenagers had already access to. The products were built initially by me, then when I delivered the curriculum, the teenagers create their own products. I would love to do more projects like this in Colombia, the problem is to get funding and at the same time make a living. Where in the world do you live? Are you thinking of a similar project?
