Caleb Sun

Designer in Pittsburgh, PA, He/Him



My name is Caleb. I am a designer studying Communications Design at Carnegie Mellon University and a brand design intern at Dropbox.

I'm a firm believer that designed brands create moments of joy and connection that enrich existing products. But as time goes on and companies grow, brands can become limited or unimaginative, and lose consistency. My work involves nurturing brands through change without losing the energy and joy that they inspire.

When I'm not designing, I'm probably making food.
