Let Me Introduce Myself
I am Mimi, Baltimore-based designer and screen printer. I studied graphic design at Towson University and fashion design at Parsons the New School of Design. Having a love for both graphic and fashion design, it took me a while to learn how to have a hand in both mediums. A few years out of college with the assistance of the internet, I learned how to screen print and fell in love with the process. Being able to see an idea evolve from a sketch and transform into a tangible piece of artwork that can be worn is an amazing process.
The Fly Nerd Series
The term "nerd" usually has a negative connotation. The term "fly" is often used as a slang term to describe something cool or stylish. A "fly nerd" is someone who has some quirks about them but they embrace those quirks. They are confident in who they are and what they like despite what others may think. Growing up I was very much a nerd and was called both quirky and weird. I have learned to embrace and love those "quirky" things about myself. My aim with this t-shirt series is to let others know its okay to be yourself.
