We recently added two new designers to our stable of talented interns. Say hi to Jessica Saia and Tamar Pacheco-Theard. You'll soon be seeing their work on our site and in our upcoming magazines, as well as reading their blog posts. In the meantime, here's a little bit about each of these lovely ladies.
Jessica is a sunny little optimist, but generally keeps the bubbles under a rolling boil. She grew up in Michigan and studied Art & Design in Chicago, with an intermission to study landscape architecture in Budapest, Hungary. After graduating, she indulged a light whim one Tuesday and bought a one-way ticket to Berlin, rented an apartment in Prenzlauerberg, and charmed her way (so she thinks) into a set of apprenticeships with some really refreshing designers. Life was good and schnitzel was plentiful, but as Euros and visas don't grow on trees (nor anything else in a German December), when her visa expired she deliberated for 3 or 4 minutes before migrating to San Francisco. After the initial shin splints wore off from wandering uphill, she settled into the cozy hub of The Duboce Triangle, where she has been trying to figure out the heating system in her apartment for the last two years. Her likes include free samples, turbulence, and infomercials about cleaning supplies. Dislikes include the current postage stamp options, newscaster voice, and being peer pressured into a standing ovation.
Tamar is a designer and illustrator who grew up in the woods of Northern Idaho. She replanted herself in New York and then California, enjoyed a stint in the Netherlands, and then finally headed back to the comforting hustle and bustle of the Bay Area. Tamar enjoys donning fancy threads and heading out for fine eats, or felicitous evenings being casually seduced by the symphony. Always looking for inspiration and in awe of nature, Tamar is a perpetual people-watcher, and shoot, just plain ol' happy to be alive.
