Hi, I’m Taybor. I’m a parent. I’m also a rock climber, backpacker, fisherman, and traveler. I have an individual identity, and my hobbies and interests didn’t change after becoming a father. The difference is now my kids come with me. I used my senior project to develop an idea that has become Paloma Pack Co.—a soft-goods company designing bags and gear to help the active and adventurous transition into parenthood, as well as fit the lifestyle and needs of veteran parents.
Post-Graduation: I plan to continue Paloma Pack Co. full time.

In an age where gender is a passionate social topic, what is the relationship between gender and the products we use every day?

Is it appropriate to design for a specific gender? Should all products be gender inclusive? How can designers be respectful of gender in their designs?
