MONINA VELARDE / BROOKLYN, NY
Hello! I'm Monina – a designer & maker residing in Brooklyn, New York. Currently, I’m designing at The New York Times. Before joining NYT, I was a Sr. Designer at Hillary For America and worked on HFA’s digital advertising for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. And before joining HFA, I was a Design Director at R/GA where I worked on a range of projects from campaigns, branding/identity & short documentaries. I also served as the Mentorship Chair on AIGA Chicago’s Board of Directors where I connected over 400 people to Chicago’s design community.
