Mia. — Designer. Maker. Curator. Organizer.  Re -Thinker.  Arts Advocate.


Mia Del Bene, a native New Yorker, was born and raised to be a jack-of-all trades designer. Passionate about the intersection of systems and communities, Mia is an abundantly curious interdisciplinary designer. Trained at the Pratt Institute and the Maine College of Art & Design, their practice is focused on researching and designing for lived experiences through visual storytelling, creation of services, development of products, and the engagement of environments in a myriad of ways. Driven by arts, culture, the environment, and the invisible power of people through community, Mia is curious about design in all forms that lead to positive impact and a social change.
