Roots: How this graphic designer turned her low light studio into a creative space and home

Roots is a series covering cool ass people, where they've decided to lay a foundation for their lives and of course, their plants. 

Meet Danni

Danni is a freshly graduated graphic designer living in a rear-facing studio apartment (she alternatively calls it a cave lol) in the East Village of Manhattan, NY. The size of her studio has allowed Danni to experiment and prioritize functional living.

Favourite area of your home?

What is probably the most eye-catching part of my home is my gallery wall! I love seeing the styles of art/design pieces I gravitate towards and have collected over time. I think it says a lot about my personality, but also serves as documentation of the places and people I purchased/acquired my prints from during a particular time in my life since pursuing a career in graphic design.

Favourite vintage / decor piece?

It would have to be my tall green vase that I got off Depop which I got as soon as I began settling into the apartment. It was my first I’m-going-to-start-investing-in-my-space purchase, if you will. It signifies my first time living alone (after having lived with a roommate for three years) and I just love how the color green pops on my dining table.



Coolest feature of your home?

100% the exposed brick wall. It’s a feature many people in NY dream of, so I consider myself very lucky to have it!

Your favourite plant?

Because I get little to no sunlight in my apartment, I’ve only invested in one low-maintenance (but well-loved) plant, my ZZ plant, Lizz. Lizz was the first plant I’ve ever owned and managed to keep alive and, again, is also a reminder of my first year deciding to live on my own.

Ending words from Danni:

I will be a fresh college graduate come mid-May, so I am currently on the hunt for a job/internship involving graphic design/branding here in NYC. I am also in the process of finishing my first ever typeface, which should be ready for purchase come June! Follow @godannigo for its release, or if you want to support and follow along my up-and-coming design career!

  • Good day,

    My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations

    What for?

    Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with definitely stands out.

    It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

    There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

    So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

    More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

    Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

    Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know INSTANTLY that they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally checking out

    CLICK HERE to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    It could be a game-changer for your business – and it gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately (and there’s literally a 100X difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes.)

    Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

    Everything I’ve just described is simple, easy, and effective.
