Miriam Buchwald


I'm a senior Communication Design student with a concentration in Industrial Design at Carnegie Mellon University.

My goal as a communication designer is to always add visceral meaning through form. Beyond the message, I believe in creating sensory experiences, making people feel meaning. I think design should be used to connect people to themselves, others, and their environment through aesthetic experiences.

But I'm not just a designer in theory...

1. I always have something in my hands: kneaded erasers, straw wrappers, hair ties. I can't stop making things.

2. My favorite ride at Disney World (since the age of four) is the carousel of progress because I love imagining the future.

3. Most of my closet is comprised of black and gray shirts,
which is difficult to manage when you have a white dog.
