Both have backgrounds in engineering and design, and both are teachers (George is a tenure-track assistant professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, while Sara lectures regularly on social design at the Kellogg School of Management and the School of the Art Institute). They both left jobs in traditional design firms to co-found their small Chicago-based studio focused entirely on underserved populations.
