Robin Hayashi

Senior Designer

Robin is a Senior Designer on IDEO.org’s Health XO program. She’s inspired by designing systems that give teens knowledge about and access to reproductive health services—while injecting the art, magic, and play of design.

Prior to joining IDEO.org, Robin served as a graphic design for J-PAL, an MIT research lab, helping make research engaging and digestible for policymakers. Before switching to the social sector, Robin hopped around small design studios, developing packaging and brand design.

Robin studied graphic design at the Rhode Island School of Design. When she’s not daydreaming about typography and IUDs, you can find Robin practicing (and occasionally teaching) yoga, reading anything by Thomas Pynchon, or eating pupusas.
