ICBRKR EXTRAORDINAIRES: Meet Adeline Diamond, Disruptive Design Strategist
Welcome to our ICBRKR Extraordinaires Series, where every two weeks, we highlight one extraordinary ICBRKR. Our community is our backbone, and we’re proud to be BRKing the mold with such a passionate and engaging group of people. ⚡️
Today, we introduce Adeline Diamond, ICBRKR’s accomplished Design Strategist from New York, and the most recent contributor to our blog, where she will share her “art”-pertise every month. In addition to being an Art Aficionado (obvi), Adeline also looks for fellow Urban Explorers and Music Lovers in the ICBRKR community. Get to know this fierce and creative woman below, and connect with her in the ICBRKR app to talk about art at one of the events she recommends. But first, enjoy her creative ICBRKR designs, including the invite to our PARTY LIKE YOU MEAN IT WITH ALL YOUR FRIENDS fiesta at Art Basel!
Adeline, what is a Design Strategist, and what do you specialize in within that?
To break it down, I am a multi-faceted designer with a vast array of experiences which have cultivated my abilities to observe, listen, and understand a design challenge, and how to address it. This is Design Strategy.
I focus on the human. I strive to produce disruptive and intelligent products, designs, and experiences that specifically evoke strong emotions. My goal is to translate user needs and desires into compelling products and unforgettable learning experiences that break down forms of communication.
That gives us chills just reading it! How would you say you BRK THE MOLD?
I break the design mold by pairing it with my teaching skills: empathy, communication, organization, collaboration, and strategy. I emphasize the importance of education through my art and design practices, and generate strong emotions through mixed mediums and various processes which cultivate my charisma and spark my creative energy.
Amen! And what is it you like most about ICBRKR?
ICBRKR is fabulous for me because it fosters relationships between people that you would otherwise not have met. I love listening to other people’s stories -- stories make up the voice of relationships. Inevitably, ICBRKR cultivates new friendships and partnerships while creating a community of like-minded people with different perspectives, experiences, and passions.
We try! What are your hobbies?
Aside from my infatuation with humans, my heart is at home when I am sketching nature “products” (e.g. flowers, ticks, insects, etc.), cooking with random ingredients and making up my own recipes, and experiencing live music with my fellow music soul mates.
And what are your guilty pleasures, if you’ll share?
My guilty pleasure is listening and belting 90s throwbacks with a good buttery and full-bodied glass of Chardonnay, paired with dark chocolate covered everything.
Amazing! Can we get in on that? Thanks for answering our questions, Adeline. We can’t wait for all your recommendations on the ICBRKR blog!
