Brandi Parker

Head of Sustainability

New York

As the Head of Sustainability at Pearlfisher New York, I pride myself on offering innovation and problem-solving, grounded in practicality, which comes from my many years of experience and expertise in technical realization.
 
Sustainability is fundamental to how Pearlfisher operates and creates, and is the foundation of the work of all of our teams. I challenge our designers to think about the end game at the start. I challenge our clients not to problem-solve based on ease, but on brand experience and environmental impact.
 
I firmly believe that the future of sustainable design does not just come down to materials – and managing waste – but implementing realistic and incremental change through a multi-disciplinary approach. By understanding changing culture, continuing to innovate with cutting-edge materials and processes, and joining this with the power of design, we can help change people’s behavior and encourage more sustainable actions and choices. This is where tangible, positive and long-term change will come from.
 
Outside of the Studio, my passion is music. I play the guitar and I write, perform and produce my own music across a range of outlets.
