Hello! My name is Riva Powers, hailing from the tiny town of Canastota in Upstate New York. I am a second-generation Graphic Designer and semi-obsessive perfectionist.
I graduated from Pratt Institute in 2010 with highest honors at Radio City Music Hall. Since then I have been been keeping busy with a variety of activities including freelancing in Manhattan, freelancing in my pajamas at home, running off to have adventures in Connecticut, then running back home to be closer to family. I paint, draw, pin, and meddle with type. I am currently employed as a designer at ChaseDesign in Skaneateles, NY where I delight in working on a range of projects and creating a beautiful solution to any challenge.
My extra time is spent attempting to improve my cooking and baking skills, scouring Netflix for foreign and indie films, and reading off-beat comics. My favorite novels are The Picture of Dorian Gray and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Since moving back home I have re-acquired a part time position babysitting the family’s Standard Schnauzer Rosie. We both enjoy wearing scarves.
