Hey! I’m Dylan Mierzwinski,
Graphic Designer, Illustrator & Sewing Enthusiast.
I help people make beautiful digital and printed work. My style is clean, feminine, and often retro. I believe in being transparent and helpful, and spending my whole life being creative.
My mother, Karen, was an artist and a gourmet cook. She could keep any plant living and had a habit of saying ‘melk’ instead of ‘milk’ (a habit she denied having). My mom, Michele, on the other hand (story here), is like a powerful Pollyanna, if you can imagine such a thing. A forensic evaluator for the State of Michigan, Michele is a force of intellect and dorkiness. Also all dogs love her. And she them.
My dad, Michael, is a charmer. He of the great quick wit and player of any instrument you hand him, is nearly impossible to not laugh along with (think puns. Many, many puns). This is both wonderful and the worst, depending on if you’re 14 and have friends over or older and nostalgic.
I’m Dylan, I’m 26-years-old and I guess I’m hoping that the above information will help you understand my strange and wonderful culmination of traits (don’t worry, my ‘self care’ posts reveal all the bad ones). A sewist, graphic designer, and wannabe home cook from my mom, an avid reader and lover of learning (and generally more stable human being) from Michele, and the wit and ability to look at life through a humorous lens from my dad.
I hope you enjoy this collection of projects, recipes, and reminders to be good to yourself.
