NYC meet-up:

Announcing soon!
January 2, 2024

Meet Nikol, your NYC host!

Hey there! I'm Nikol (she/her), and I'm deeply passionate about design and art. With four years of design experience under my belt, I'm all about aesthetics, books and soaking up inspiration at museums and bookstores. Having studied design right here in the vibrant city of NYC, I understand the unique challenges that accompany the creative journey. Becoming part of a thriving creative community and finding endless inspiration through design is absolutely incredible. That's why I'm beyond excited to be co-hosting #TDKtuesdays right here in the heart of NYC. Everyone has a unique design journey, and I believe in the power of sharing experiences to strengthen our creative community. Whether you're a student looking to start your career in design, a creative eager to connect with fellow creatives, or a seasoned industry pro seeking like-minded folks to catch up with, #TDKtuesdays is the perfect place for you! Let's come together and celebrate our shared love for design.
