“Liam Speranza is a multidisciplinary designer living and working in New York City. Before becoming a designer, they studied biochemistry and worked in science as a teacher, researcher, public health advocate and science communicator. They work in science continues to influence their design processes. They are passionate about the ways artistic and scientific methods interact and they aim to use creative and analytics processes to develop design solutions that spark positive sustainable change. After graduating from Shillington School of Design in 2020, they worked with creative studios, editorial publications, start-ups and research firms. When not designing, you can find them on a long run, pretending to be a photographer with their iPhone camera and studying French for the twentieth time.”
