About Rashida

I'm a Brooklyn Born graduate from Parsons School of Design with a BFA in Communication Design. There I learned design is not just making something look pretty (although simple and elegant design is necessary for start-ups to succeed today), it is a way of thinking that is user focused and always ready to improve. After spending some time working in different sized advertising agencies I've gained a lot of experience and honed my skills. I realized that my true passions lie in doing something important that will leave a positive mark on this world. Even my advertising portfolio (www.rashidaprattis.com) is littered with ideas that spark positive social change. I'm a collaborative, hard working, passionate individual who is looking to become a huge asset to a founding team with similar values.
