Hello! My name is Florence Lafite, I’m an interaction designer with a strong multidisciplinary and international background. I thrive in new environments and with new challenges.

I was born and raised in Biarritz, in the South West of France. After majoring in chemistry and physics, and spending most of my time snowboarding, I decided I wanted to design beautiful products so I went to study arts and visual communications. Diploma in hand I was convinced I would settle and work for a creative agency. Instead, I found myself exploring the world for a few years and working at places I would have never imagined. While on the road, I became obsessed with the idea of designing clothing and combining my graphic design skills with making beautiful garments. So, I settled down in San Francisco to study fashion design, which required convincing the US immigration officer that Paris was somehow not the place for a fashion designer to be.

After five years spent in San Francisco, studying, building a clothing collection (laflodesign.com) and working for Louis Vuitton North America as a Communications Advisor, I went back to school in Los Angeles to study Interaction Design. My diverse experiences help me ideate solutions with a broad perspective on problems. Understanding issues from many perspectives enhances empathy, which leads to well thought out decisions. I am passionate about understanding how the mind works, empowering people and helping them be the best version of themselves, using many different tools such as Human Design as an example.

 Currently in Tampa, FL pursuing a master's in entrepreneurship.
