Congratulations on your 2020 CIA Graduation, SSD Intern Kristin Brindza

Congratulations to longtime SmartShape Design Industrial Design Intern Kristin Brindza on your 2020 graduation from the Cleveland Institute of Art!  

During her senior year at CIA, Kristin served as our Industrial Design Intern, assisting our team on new projects and contributing meaningfully while developing her creative skills into strategic problem solving and empathetic design thinking skills.     

Kristin completed and graduated CIA with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Industrial & Product Design in the midst of a global pandemic in Spring 2020.  She was one of few in her graduating class to be hired into a design firm upon graduation.  Congrats, Kristin, we are so happy for you!
