BFA Industrial Design, 1999
Roxanne "Roxy" Lo is a partner and industrial designer at Ibis Cycles. She also works as an industrial design consultant for Light & Motion. Both endeavors allow her to exercise her passion for "conscientious" bike design.
There are very few people in this world who have an eye [for design], and fewer still who have the training to use it.
The Industrial Design Program at CCA gave me the skills and confidence to express myself in ways that impact my clients in positive ways.
From collaborating with others to deeply thinking about problems, my degree at CCA was instrumental in my career successes and long-lasting client relationships.
There are plenty of engineers and software developers out there; and those who take aesthetics seriously will find their path among them.
Her client list is as impressive as her passion for bikes: CamelBak, Pottery Barn Kids, Lynns Concepts, fuseproject, Target Sourcing (Hong Kong), Design Continuum, frogdesign, Lithonia Lighting, and others.
Yves Béhar inspired me to aspire beyond expectations.
Leslie Speer instilled in me a strong work ethic.
Barry Katz inspired me to question and consider every project and its potential effect on the world.
