How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
How do you think others would describe you in 3 words?
What are your go-to blogs for fashion & tech news info?
I’ve subscribed to a lot of places like R29, Glamour, Teen Vogue, etc. just so I have things to read in my inbox throughout the day to have a brief mental check out. Other than that, when I’m exploring websites like Designspiration or Dribbble I normally see ads for tech websites and check them out that way. There, too—a lot of people who create those trendy apps, usually create more than one so I try to look up the company or creator to see what else is out there.
Pick one: music, food, or movies.
If you could listen to one artist forever, who would it be?
What do you love most about working with Third Wave Fashion?
I haven’t been here for too long, but I really enjoy all the people who work here and can’t wait to get to know them more! I already feel like I can be a lot more creative here in terms of doing design work, and I’m pretty excited about it.
Who’s your style or business crush?
I hate to be like, “I love looking at men’s fashion,” but seriously I love looking at men’s fashion. It’s just so cool and clean. I shop with my boyfriend or walk in to places like Top Man or Ernest Alexander and just wish that they made bags like that for women. There’s just something about the simplicity of their style that I enjoy, so don’t be surprised if you catch me reading a GQ whether it be for the fashion or clean typography.
What’s your favorite startup right now, and why?
Well, I’m not sure if they are still technically a startup right now, but I signed up for Instagrid a little while back because I use Instagram about 3 times a day and I wanted a way for people to view it with out having the hassel of going through all my tweets. The site is extremely clean and straight forward—this is my instagrid: http://instagrid.me/p_razzed. The company that designed it is called Social Print Studio and they also came up with Printstagram, so you can turn your Instagrams in to tshirts, memory boxes, stickers, posters, tiny booklets, and prints.
Who inspires you—whether in business or in life?
Anyone who can openly speak their mind, whether it’s good or bad. Some of these people can come off as catty or standoffish, but I admire the honesty. We all need a reality check from time to time, it’s what makes us better.
Where do you see yourself in 7 years?
Hopefully, I will have opened my own agency that doubles in both visual and verbal communication for companies that are just starting out, or in desperate need of a makeover. As much as I would love this company to be set up in Munich or Milan, I’m just hoping I’ll still be in NYC at the very least.
