Verena Michelitsch is an Austrian freelance graphic designer, art director, and illustrator based in New York. She studied Communication Design & Exhibition Design at FH Joanneum in Graz, Austria. After graduation, she was granted a one year artist-in-residency program which led her to start her own business right after college. After a year, she joined two friends to start their own design studio, called EN GARDE, in Graz, Austria. With EN GARDE, she received several awards in the field of design, including the Red Dot Award and Cannes Young Lions. In 2012 she moved to NYC, and was lucky to work for Sagmeister & Walsh, Pentagram, and RoAndCo. Last year, she left her role as design director at Sid Lee NY to start freelancing again. Currently, she works between NY & SF for clients like Apple, Conde Nast and smaller brands in the field of fashion and accessories. She also runs Sand & Such, a blog dedicated to sleep.

SHOP HER WISHLIST
✓ Transmitter park, waterfront.
✓ In Summer I love sitting at the Pencil Factory Bar and sip rose with my girlfriends, so cliché.
✓ I am obsessed with the food at Selamat Pagi (Balinese) and my boyfriend and I love to go to Glasserie. And this Italian spot Naked Dog is really good. During the week I frequently go to Littleneck Outpost or Eagle Trading Company.
✓ In Summer I sometimes go on exploratory bike rides with my boyfriend, it's fun to cross the weird bridges between LIC and Roosevelt Island (and there is another bridge more north I forgot)
✓ Ferry: I love the ferry. Just the best way to commute.
