I moved to New York City with a specific dream – to be a designer at Domino. Having completed a brief internship there in college, I was thrilled to be hired as Art Assistant. Since I was a Fine Art major without any design background, my Design Director encouraged me to take typography classes through the School of Visual Arts to learn the foundation of design. While I was learning typography, something in me clicked, and I knew I’d found my path. I began designing pages in Domino, relishing every second until that cold Wednesday morning in January 2009, when our Editor in Chief stepped into the conference room, threw her arms up, and cried out that Condé Nast had folded the title. My heart was broken, but my dream was not deterred.
