Born and raised in New York, Aimée spent her school holidays exploring the fashion showrooms where her parents both worked. From this early exposure to fashion trends and textiles, Aimée developed the foundation for her diverse interest in design and trends. She began working as a freelance graphic designer shortly after graduating from the School of The Art Institute of Chicago in 2001. Aimée has also worked as an in-house designer for several firms including Designspace, Dwell, and Martha Stewart Living. In the past, Aimée has designed for Bed Bath and Beyond, Crate and Barrel, Urban Outfitters, Dwell, Dwellbaby, Martha Stewart Living, MTV Cribs, Skip Hop, and Gap Kids. Most recently, Aimee signed a licensing agreement with Vans to feature three of her designs on shoes and accessories. These products will be in stores and on the Vans website in March 2009. Aimée draws her inspiration from contemporary graphic art and the design world. Influences include typography, logo design, illustration, textiles, urban toy design, rock poster art. Aimée’s current projects include designs for home textiles and accessories, fashion and print, including an exciting collaboration with Netto Collection.
