2018 Katrina Simon

Using the crayon as her primary tool, which traditionally has no place in the adult life, Katrina Simon is creating solutions that ease aging and communication challenges by enhancing ordinary adult objects, with new and impactful functionalities.  By injecting imagination, creativity, and play, a cross-generational foundation is formed to improve intergenerational communication, while making the aging process more enjoyable through inner-child embracement.
