Hi, I’m Zoë Gomer.
I’m a designer with a passion for sustainability and creating a better future - whether that be through innovative consumer technology, designing packaging with eco-friendly materials, or curating memorable brand experiences.
Currently, I am working for Newell Brands as a Packaging Innovation Associate in the Charlotte, NC area. In this role I advocate for consumers by creating improved packaging experiences and choosing sustainable materials while aligning with various brands’ design languages.
Previously, I worked at Beyond Design in Chicago where I had the opportunity to work on experiential design, home goods design, and commercial product design. My first industrial design internship was at Diebold Inc. developing futuristic banking and ATM concepts. While in school I gained invaluable leadership experience through serving as both treasurer & president of RIT’s IDSA chapter as well as co-coordinating Thought At Work, a completely student run design conference.
Awards & press: RIT IDSA Student Merit Award Finalist, Alfred L. & Ruby C. Davis Leadership Scholarship Award Winner, Paperboard Packaging Alliance “Shout Out” Award, IDSA Member Spotlight, RIT University News Student Spotlight, and London International Creative Competition Honorable Mention
Outside of design my interests include running, rock climbing, vegetables, podcasts about history, watercolor painting, scoping out local breweries, coffee, and dogs.
