Lindsay Kotovsky

SPORTS PRODUCT DESIGNER

Lindsay Kotovsky studied at the University of Colorado, Boulder and Portland State University where she received a bachelor of science with a focus in both Architecture and Studio Arts. While in Boulder, she interned with M12, a collective of architects and artists. This opportunity opened the door for her to bring large-scale structural projects to life. Being drawn to the outdoor culture in Boulder and then in Portland, she found commonplace vernacular in running trail, climbing rocks, or cycling road/trails. In her post studio life, climbing and cycling have become her passion shifting her away from architectural environments and toward sports product where she can fuse sport and design.
