Good evening from Morningstar Chicago! 3.8.2017

Hello AIGA Chicago!

It's been a week since I was with you in Chicago and I haven't stopped thinking about your kindness, receptivity and thoughtful questions. Thank you for coming to listen to what Tereasa, Susan and I had to offer. I only regret that we didn't have more time together, there is so much to share towards living and thriving as a woman in the design fields.

To that end, I am sharing some of the authors and books that have been my guides, and at times, my irritants. Either way they have somehow stimulated my thinking and helped me find ways to inhabit my experiences. I hope you find some of them interesting and useful.

I loved your city and I can't wait to return, I hope to see you again in the near future.

Thanks again — Susan, Anya, Tereasa, Heather, Silvana, Morgan, Marissa and Mig. Such a pleasure me meet you all. 

xo, Nikki
