Drink in Design: Jasmine Burton

Grab a beverage, any beverage, and get comfortable because MODA is bringing design to you!

Join us online for a virtual Drink in Design. Atlanta’s most creative people (and some from beyond the 404) will invite you into their home, studio, or maker space. They’ll tell you about their work, their career trajectory, and what they’re thinking about now as our world takes a new form.

Drink in Design will be held on Zoom, so you’ll be able to interact and engage with each designer personally. Just register and the meeting link will be delivered straight to your inbox.

On June 10th, we’ll be talking with social inclusion & design specialist, Jasmine Burton, founder of Wish for WASH and a social impact designer who seeks to utilize design thinking, evidence-based research, and business acumen to build a more inclusive world.

Jasmine will be talking about this social impact organization that innovates around sanitation. And, in honor of Menstrual Hygiene Day, an annual awareness day to highlight the importance of good menstrual hygiene management (MHM), she’ll be talking about a menstrual product design collaboration she’s working on!
