Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
Grew up in a small Swiss village; was headed down a business track in school.
Convinced her parents to send her to art school for one year; she was happier than she'd ever been.
Switched over to design, moved to New York after graduation, found an internship that day, got her visa within the month.
Started her blog, swiss-miss, as a side project; since then, always pursues the "passion projects" that grabbed her.
Her side projects, like Tattly and TeuxDeux, have actually blossomed into lucrative businesses of their own.
After starting her own design studio-something she'd always dreamed of-she realized it wasn't right for her.
Learned that rather than working for someone else, she found more fulfillment pursuing her own "labors of love."
Says that there's pressure to instantly succeed today, but most "really good things" grow slowly and take time.

Day to Day

In addition to my design blog swissmiss, I also run four “side-projects gone businesses”; a collaborative co-working space called Studiomates, a global, monthly lecture series called CreativeMornings, TeuxDeux the simple to-do app and Tattly, a design-y temporary tattoo shop. Due to the number of businesses I run, I have lost track of how many emails I receive daily and try to keep up. I have weekly team meetings to keep everyone on track. I read a lot.
