Ria’s path to graphic design was indirect — she started coding in high school and thought she’d build apps. With a background in fine arts and a love for creativity, she realized the most interesting parts of coding projects was the design and user experience. She switched to graphic design and has never looked back.
Her design perspective and process is driven by the Virgo in her, which is a source of pride. She brings an empathetic and structured approach to design projects and gravitates towards a clear grid and expressive typography.
Her passion for design and being creative follows into fashion and interior design. She feels most empowered when well dressed and in sneakers. When not designing she loves to thrift like it’s a sport and sift through “print versions” of fashion and interior design magazines.
Ria has a BFA in graphic design from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Born and raised in New Jersey (and owning Jersey pride) she’s thrilled to finally call New York City home.
