PROFILE Jaime Derringer, Founder and Editor of Design Milk

We first met Jaime Derringer at ICFF a few years back when she stopped by the ROLLOUT booth and we connected over a long chat about all things design. Derringer regularly makes contributions to the global design community with her work as a public speaker, business consultant, writer, and noted expertise on design trends and contemporary style. As the Founder and Editor of Design Milk, her work has been catapulted into the forefront of modern design media, being featured everywhere from Time Out New York to Singapore Home & Décor magazine. As a testament to being open to chance, our interactions with Derringer have helped to facilitate our participation in a few Design Milk features, which aim to bring you what’s new in art, architecture, interior design, furniture and decor, fashion, and technology.

What resources do you use for creating your work? Just a computer and an internet connection is all I need.

 

Can you share any of your secret tips? No because then they wouldn't be secrets anymore.

 

What did your parents want you to be instead of a creative? My parents always encouraged me to be creative, an independent thinker and follow my dreams. I decided to be more practical and take the beaten path, but that didn't work out in the end. I should've listened to them in the first place.

 

Is there a piece of art you wished you had created? I am no good at creating art.

 

What gets you excited about tomorrow? Waking up to do what I love every day.

 

How would you refer to the current artistic style and mindset you live in today? Constant state of saying "awesome" and "amazing."
