Juliette Laroche is currently an industrial designer living in Austin, Texas. She graduated Cum Laude from University of Houston and received a Bachelor of Science in industrial design in 2017. She was born in Miami, Florida and grew up speaking French, Spanish and English at home. She lived in Ecuador until the age of 6 and spent all of her summers in the Florida Keys exploring its ocean grounds. Her love for nature exponentially grew from there and her designs and ideas have been heavily influenced by how nature has seamlessly solved problems.
In her free time she takes pictures of any patterns she finds in nature, loves to run, go lobstering, play tennis, rock climb and experiment with plaster and water colors. When she can she loves to sketch and read books on biomimicry, business and design. Aside from industrial design she is a published poet, designs illustrations and has a passion for learning new ways to tell stories through animation and visual graphics.
