We brought in the idea of Sustainability into the mix, providing the students with information about Eco-Friendly building materials, on site recycling systems, and educational initiatives.
For the 2020 Miami Marathon, we had the opportunity to co-design the ribbons on the race medals. We incorporated 3 different bay ecosystems into the design. Mangroves, Seagrass, and Coral reefs are all extremely important to Miami, creating shoreline protection from hurricanes, nurseries for marine life, and resiliance
