Adina Barrientos

Creative. Driven. Experienced.

Graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2018 with a BS in Textile and Fashion Design and a Certificate in Entrepreneurship, I currently work as a Merchandise Analyst at Kohl’s Corporation. I am keen to combine diverse skills to take on new and exciting challenges. I channeled my creativity into design and studied business and worked in marketing to better understand my surroundings. I then pivoted into merchandising to gain analytical insight and productively structure my creativity. At the core of my creative passion, however, is finding solutions to the environmental crisis. It is this never-ending goal that drives me to work harder.

As an avid rock climber, hiker, and kayaker, I find much of my inspiration in the outdoors and admire the complex patterns that can be found in nature. I believe design has enormous potential to connect consumers to nature and thus making them more conscious about their consumerism. Combining my education in business, my skill in design, and my enthusiasm for innovation, I greatly look forward to taking on new and creative challenges.
