CORNISH COLLEGE OF THE ARTS

Danae is in her final semester pursuing a BFA in Design. During her time at Cornish she learned how to be a better listener and speak unapologetically about what matters. Her instructors and peers bring out her best qualities: harnessing empathy, problem solving, making meaningful experiences, and harmonizing inner-space with everyday interfaces. She gets up early for environmental, packaging, and print design and stays up late making illustrations and tattoos. A true Taurus, Danae loves a lazy sunny day, museums, and a good smorgasbord.
