Stefanie Pillert

Web Designer

I recently graduated from the University of San Francisco with a Bachelor’s Degree in Design. The majority of my work revolves around sustainability and creating ways to change how we view Design on a day to day basis. Barrel Bag has given me the opportunity to combine my work and passion! I believe that caring for the environment provides us with a healthier and better life. Growing up in Hawai’i allowed me to see at a young age how important it is to care for our surroundings and especially the oceans. This mindset gives me the opportunity to keep growing in my work and benefiting others around me.
