In retrospect, Dyana sees that she was destined to be a typeface designer. Since she was old enough to read, she would find letters among the tiles in bathroom floors. She went on to major in Graphic Design at Rhode Island School of Design, where one teacher told her “the type bug bit [her] the worst.” She is one of the few type designers who actually likes kerning.
She has been a presenter at ATypI, TypeCon, and TypeCamp, but also enjoys sharing her expertise locally with college students, wizard rock bands, and astrophysicists.
When she is not thinking about type, she is napping, breakdancing, or debating her coworkers about the existence of free will.
"I want people to find joy in what they are doing, and create something that they feel excited about."
Lately, Orange Cream soda
Italy, Iceland, Patagonia
I just threw out a rubber band and twisty-tie collection
Type: Err... too many to choose from
Personal: Again, too many--everyone has their strengths, I look to different people for advice
