Jenna Lyons Designed an Orange Wheelchair

Jenna Lyons has been incredibly quiet these last few months. And I don’t blame her, she’s the Creative Director of a company that has gone through a round of massive layoffs.

It just seems a little odd to me that in her first interview in months, this is how she chooses to answer the question “Where do you see yourself in another 25 years?”

“Oh my God…I’ve got my wheelchair designed! It’s going to be powder-coated in neon orange.” ~Jenna Lyons

Let me get this straight. I have been petitioning a company for the last 2 years, asking them to sell a cane. A powder-coated purple cane. And the Creative Director of that company suddenly answers an open ended question by saying she has a wheelchair designed? And the defining feature is its color?

I’m starting to wonder if we’re finally getting through to them.

Please, if you haven’t already, take a moment to sign.
