IF THERE WERE NO BARRIERS AND CONSTRAINTS, WHAT PROJECT WOULD YOU WANT TO WORK ON?
If the sky were the limit, I’d love to design a hot sauce line, a makeup line, or brand and design an amusement park. I love any opportunity to design a character, and tell a story with color.
WHAT ARE YOU READING/LISTENING TO/WATCHING?
I’m currently listening to Yo La Tengo, Talking Heads, and the Cocteau Twins, watching the tv show Community for the first time and reading Tibor Kalman, Perverse Optimist.
WHO IS SOMEONE YOU LOOK UP TO IN YOUR FIELD?
A modern day design icon, Zuzanna Rogatty is a huge inspiration. She’s a Polish designer and art director working at COLLINS in New York. She inspires me by pushing the limits of typography as a lettering artist with her own unique bubbly colorful style.
