Afshin Mehin is the founder of Card 79 as a vehicle for exploring future forms. With a background in mechanical engineering and design, Afshin consistently blurs the boundaries between the digital and the physical, and between the old and the new. He’s worked with visionaries at Neuralink and M.I.T.’s Media Lab, honed his design sensibility with masters at Barber Osgerby and Terence Conran, and partnered with the likes of Amazon, Lululemon and Ford to launch new products that transform businesses. Prior to Card79, Afshin worked at IDEO and Whipsaw in the Bay Area. Afshin’s grandfather was a fortune teller in Yazd, a small city in Iran, and with Card 79, he’s carrying on his family’s legacy.
