More about Ti:
Ti Chang is disrupting the adult products industry through innovative design.
Co-founder and VP of Design at CRAVE, a San Francisco-based company that specializes in discreet and beautifully designed luxury sex toys, her first design—the Duet—was a crowd-funded project that ultimately raised over $100,000 from more than 900 donors. She’s since led the the company’s expansion to a full line of products, including its celebrated foreplay jewelry.
Prior to CRAVE, Ti was the first female industrial designer at both Trek Bicycle and Goody Products. During her time at Goody, she was named inventor on numerous patents and designed the best-selling ‘ouchless’ hairbrush collection. She went on to found INCOQNITO (acquired by CRAVE in 2011) through which she developed a line of intimate accessories that served as the foundation for foreplay jewelry.
A native of Atlanta, GA who now enjoys life and work in the San Francisco Bay Area, Ti holds an MA in Design Products from Royal College of Art in London and a BS in Industrial Design from Georgia Institute of Technology.
