Dawn Hancock is a troublemaker, a bleeding heart, a designer by trade and a do-gooder by choice. Two things she likes: ideas and people. She’s been known to put them together in a room, just to see what happens. She started Firebelly Design in 1999 with a simple mission: Good Design for Good Reason. Since then, she’s been diligent about hiring passionate overachievers, seeking out fearless allies and taking on projects with the potential to uplift communities.

Sometimes generosity manifests itself to you, personally and professionally, in unexpected ways. Dawn Hancock’s breakthrough moment was a welcoming individual named Kent. Dawn knows more than anyone how short life can be, and has gotten everywhere by taking risks, big and small. Having made of one of the biggest decisions of her life, she reflects on the seemingly insignificant moments that have shaped her professional life in remarkable ways.
