Justine Sun Dela Cruz
As a Design Lead at IDEO.org's San Francisco studio, Justine is responsible for harmonizing complex systems and transforming them into elegant human experiences. As a lifelong learner, curiosity and empathy drive her desire to engage with the world and the people in it.
Justine has collaborated with startups, agencies, and R&D teams within large corporations, creating work that spans from high-level strategy to detailed design specs. She holds a Bachelor of Industrial Design from Carleton University and continues to build for physical spaces through her art studio that she co-founded, which focuses on custom light installations.
On her off time, Justine volunteers with various organizations to create events that cultivate community and creativity. She's most in flow when surrounded by nature and good company. These days you can find her expanding her houseplant collection, running culinary experiments in her kitchen, and exploring the nooks and crannies of whatever city she's in.
