Reasons to remember why I love what I do, and why I do what I love.
Vanessa Hernandez is a designer and an artist in Los Angeles. Although formally trained in graphic design, she has fallen for tactile, hand-rendered design and spends most days dreaming up ways to fabricate elements without a keyboard and mouse. What started as a hobby between procrastinating on art projects became a way to further her design techniques. Her wares have been designed for personalities such as Oprah Winfrey and Lady Gaga. Having worked with companies such as TOMS, Falling Whistles, and Unique LA, she leans toward artisanal pro-social design movements and those who make them happen.
