Every year, for the past several years, Modenus, the online resource for all things design, gives out an award to the Top Design Influencers. This year they decided to shake things up and give out the Changemaker Award.

"Our communities have nominated these design influencers they felt had created real change by helping others navigate business challenges; creating new programs or pivoting their own business models during 2020. We raise our glasses to this exceptional group of designers and influencers for their outstanding achievements and ability to create change in the industry, their own business and the lives of others." - Veronika Miller, CEO Modenus

I have been honored to be recognized as one of their influencers for the past several years, alongside many of my friends and professional colleagues but this year was special because it's been such a challenging time on so many levels!

Their new list of award recipients for 2021 includes a group 15 of my esteemed colleagues. I am truly so honored to find myself in such good company!

In January, the entire group of us will meet up to celebrate at the Signature Kitchen Suite “True To Food” Experience & Design Center in Napa Valley, CA. Stayed tuned as I cover this amazing event here on the blog and of course over on The Gram!
