hi there, 


My name is Courtney Pozzi,

I’m a designer and engineer interested in creating platforms for people to engage with the world and others around them. I enjoy creating beautiful user experiences in both physical and digital spaces.






about me


personal ethos 

I am a recent graduate of Carnegie Mellon University (17') with a BFA in Industrial Design and a minor in Biomedical Engineering.  I currently live in New York. 

If I’m not at home, you can find me in a museum. One of my life goals is to make art accessible and engaging for people from a greater variety of ages and socio-economic backgrounds. 

(If you’ve checked all the galleries and I’m nowhere to be seen, I might be temporary tattooing or making faces with my dog

Want to know more about what I'm Seeing + Saying? 


I believe design is...
