Let me tell you a story.

One day, while working at a biotech company, I told my supervisor that I was considering a career in design. "Doing what you like is good," he said, "but maybe you should consider something more practical."

A week later, I quit the company and began teaching myself design software from scratch.

I believe anything I'm passionate about can be practical.

My name is Cindy and I'm a designer working at an award-winning agency in Norfolk, Virginia. I love thinking of design strategies and creative solutions for whatever project I'm working on until a white dude takes credit for it. When I'm not hunched over my laptop and playing around with Photoshop, I'm either writing my dystopian novel or changing my hair color for the fifteenth time.
