These are our letterpress designers.
What’s the most exciting thing you’ve done? I love traveling — most recently my husband and I spent a week hiking in the Alps.
What inspires your designs? Vintage record jackets, illustrations in old cookbooks and children’s books, nature, travel, things I find at flea markets
What is your most prized possession? I love the engagement ring my husband gave to me. It is small and vintage — rose gold with moonstone. It is one of a kind.
Tell us about your wedding. Our wedding was simple, rustic and very much us. Everyone rode the ferry from Seattle to a small island for the wedding. I walked down the aisle to a jazz trio playing our favorite song. My sister read a beautiful poem she wrote about us. Friends shared funny stories during the meal. And our first dance was to a Jimi Hendrix song.
Describe the place where you design. My “studio” = wherever there is space in our city apartment
What were the colors of your childhood? Clover, umber, marigold and red — the colors of the burger joint my parents ran when I was little
What’s on your nightstand? A pinecone I picked up from a hike and a big pile of magazines
What city do you call home? New York is currently home. There are too many things I love about the city to list here. Just a few favorites: the Village Vanguard, the Brooklyn Flea, the MoMA, the Spencer Finch installation at the High Line, and spending a day walking or biking around a neighborhood.
What are your favorite colors of the moment? Grey and neon orange
