Napat (Nick) Petcharatana was born and raised in Thailand. She obtained bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design from Chulalongkorn University and continued as a product designer at the biggest bathroom product company in Thailand. It is her experience traveling through Asia, Europe, and Americas that has shaped her the most as a designer. With ten years of training in design, she worked as both a teacher and a designer before joining master of industrial design at Pratt Institute to learn new tools and techniques to expand her creative potential. Nick is increasingly optimistic about the convergence of physical and digital products and the potential they have toward human well-being. In 2017, she received Rowena Reed Kostellow Award from Pratt's Department of Industrial Design.
