I'm a new resident of Nashville, TN relocated from NYC. I've been working professionally for 8 years predominantly in the fashion industry. I'm a typography nut; love a well thought out book design; hate poorly designed magazines that are difficult to navigate; will buy something just because the packaging is amazing.
