Prior to joining the Backpack team, Pantea finished her Master’s degree in a multidisciplinary design program at the School of Visual Arts, and worked as a UX/UI and Visual Designer for start-up companies and artists. This gave her an understanding of design research, digital product design, service design, experience design, and system thinking. Pantea believes that design is a great tool to build a more equitable world and is passionate about accessible design.
She was born and raised in Tehran, Iran, where she discovered her love for art and literature, and got her Bachelor’s degree in architecture. When she is not designing, you can find her at museums, comedy shows, or at home taking a nap with her cats.
