My Ethical Clothing Guidebook!: Zine & Walkthrough

Fashion is such a tricky topic, but it's one we need to confront as consumers. So in the hopes of demystifying the industry and how we can make ethical choices, I made this zine! From here, I'll be walking through the main points in case any are confusing or pique your interest from what little text I could include in the zine itself. (aka, this is all that I actually wanted to write but had to restrain myself for the zine!)

A New York haul, of sorts

Mid-month, Eric and I spent 5 days in New York for a mini-vacation and a trip for my birthday! One of my absolute favorite things to do when I visit a new city is to poke around the different tiny antique/vintage/thrift shops in any given area, because it shows you so much about the culture. And of course, New York being known for fashion, they had so many options in Manhattan/Brooklyn alone, the areas we frequented.

How to keep in touch

I’ve realized that graduating and going into adulthood is tricky for many reasons — a major one being that you’ve met all these amazing people from university and then suddenly, we all go to different places and take on different lifestyles.

A year in books: 2018

My year in books was something I did for the first time at the start of 2018, for the books I had read in 2017. I wanted to share what I read for the year past because I was able to learn so much from those books and wanted to share that with others; plus, I get asked all the time what books I’d recommend! For the end of 2018, I wanted to do something a bit different and share in more depth about my picks.

My most used design tech

For my first blog post, I thought I’d tackle a frequently asked question I get — what kind of equipment I use to create my work! It’s definitely gotten more complex over the course of my time as a designer, but I’ve learned to focus on those items that perform the best in my own workflow.
