Krystal Persaud (Grouphug), Gabe Ruegg (MCAD)

On Wednesday, February 6th, Founder Krystal Persaud visits the Minneapolis College of Art & Design (MCAD) to talk about her journey in product design, sustainability, & the importance of making the things you wish existed a reality. She got to sit down with several design classes and deep dive into discussions about the environment, ethics, and manufacturing.


Top questions from students:

  • What do you do when you feel like giving up?!

  • What are the most important factors to consider when designing a sustainable product?

  • How do I find a job that aligns with my personal values?


It was a very energizing trip! We always love visiting schools & hearing from young designers. Thank you Gabe Ruegg & the school for inviting us to come visit! Can’t say we will miss the -10 degree weather though…
