About the Book
Welcome to Napa’s studio
Design inspires me to create products that enhance people’s lives and make them smile.
I believe that simple things can lead to good solutions. Each product has its own story and unique environment. When I combine the world of design with a story, I’m generating a surprise for the world.
Napa was born in Frederick town, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, in 1980 and grew up in Bangkok, Thailand. She has loved to draw and color since high school and her favorite subject was art class. Napa has a BFA in Industrial Design from King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, Bangkok Thailand. After graduation, she began working at the Lamont Design Company. Her three years of work experience have enabled her to understand the broader principles of product design. However, her dream has always been to work internationally and gain more experience. In 2006, she got accepted at the Academy of Art University and moved to San Francisco as an Industrial Design student. At the Academy, she has learned about the world of design from a group of very talented designers.
