Francine Thompson is a graphic designer, stylist, and work in progress.

She constantly strives to make design more human. Francine’s interested in the intersection between digital and physical brand experiences and how they can better connect people. Her work has its roots in smart strategy but comes to life through thoughful visual systems that resonate.

Like most designers, she has yet to finish her website. For now you can explore her undergraduate thesis below. Stay tuned.


Ora Beauty

A physical manifestation of a year’s worth of undergraduate thesis work, Ora Beauty is a conceptual haircare brand for black women. The idea for the brand came from research that has shown the ingredients in black womens’ haircare products are highly toxic. Disturbed by the fact that hair products for white women would never harm them and that black haircare products haven’t gotten a modern design upgrade, Francine set out to make Ora.
