Design Director (he/him)
Logan is known in the studio as a great collaborator who’s dedicated to his craft. His creative approach is enriched by constant extracurricular practice, historical research, and creative experimentation. Logan's calming, supportive presence and sense of deep gratitude for life have led his teammates to describe him as “human sunshine.” In addition to his passion for design, Logan is a sports-lover who revels in the outdoors and delights in having Prospect Park as his (almost) back yard.
