about me

hi! nice to meet you! my name is minna so ( pronounced mee-na ).

i am a freelance graphic designer and illustrator based in washington, dc. i've been blogging since 2009, and have been doing freelance work for almost three years now! before freelancing, i opened my very first etsy shop in 2010. i was only in high school and didn't really know what i was getting myself into. i always saw myself as a creative person because growing up, i was surrounded by people that allowed me to express myself in many ways. my mother was a commercial artist herself, designing billboards and ads, so i was always inspired by all of her hard work and accomplishments. in 2011, i got a crazy idea to open up a jewelry shop which was really fun! i am not sure what drives me to do all of these things, but i like to keep myself busy. over the past several years i taught myself how to use photoshop and illustrator, how to write in calligraphy, how to use an slr camera, and more! i hope to get better as i continue to practice and get the chance to learn new things. i know God has a wonderful plan in mind for all of us, and i'm excited for what is next in my life. i'm so glad that i can share a part of my life with you all through my blog!

starting a blog has opened so many doors for me and helped me realize what i love to do. minna may covers everything from design, to fashion, interior design, food, and more! i hope my blog brings inspiration to you all like so many other blogs do for me. this is a way for me to make a small difference in the world, and to shine a bit of light when things seem dark. i want my blog to bring a smile to peoples faces!

a little more about me:
i was born and raised in the beautiful city of seattle, washington. i moved to portland, oregon and lived there for about five years. now that i'm living on the eastcoast, i definitely miss the westcoast, and hope to move back one day soon. i am currently a student studying visual communication design. i hope that one day i can start a company of my own. being an entrepreneur is one of my dreams and is something that i have strived for since i was young.

i am so grateful to all of the love + support, and i just want to thank you so much for stopping by my blog! if you have any questions or just want to say hi, please feel free to send me an email, i would love to hear from you!

all the best,
minna so
