I enjoy my work because each idea is like a problem or a riddle to be solved. There’s no single answer, but I like trying to find the best one. I feel most excited while exploring something new.

About
Carrie Mather-Crowner

Hello, and welcome! Thanks for your interest. I’m an award-winning product designer with products currently set in major retailers nation-wide. In addition to product design, my professional skills include graphic and packaging design and production. I’m an avid fiber artist with concentrations in knitting, crochet and surface design.

I enjoy my work because each idea is like a problem or a riddle to be solved. There’s no single answer, but I like trying to find the best one. I feel most excited while exploring something new.

I graduated magna cum laude with a BFA from The University of Michigan School of Art & Design in 2008 and currently live with my husband and our feline child in the Metro Detroit area.

Thanks again for being here and thanks for being you!
