Hello! My name is Marian and I am an artist and graphic designer living in Oakland, California. I started this blog to document design inspirations and projects that I am working on. When I am not designing, you can find me perusing a bookstore or library, dreaming about cheeses and croissants, bird watching at Lake Merritt, and exploring the city on my bike.

I would love to help you with your design projects, big and small. You can contact me at marian@urbanpetite.com
