Callie Kant grew up in sunny PHOENIX, AZ, but currently lives in NEW YORK. Though she grew up loving everything art, she first moved east to attend UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA, where she majored in Communication. Upon graduating, she moved to New York to work in merchandising and operations at a small fashion company, where she learned the ins and outs of running a business and amassed a shoe collection that currently has her cursing for more closet space.
After a few years, she decided to get back to her artistic side and returned to school. Many coffees, X-Acto knife injuries, and an internship at BARNEYS later, she graduated from PRATT INSTITUTE with a Masters in Communications Design in the spring of 2010.
Following her time at Pratt, she worked as a designer in the advertising department at REDBOOK MAGAZINE, then as the Associate Art Director of the Digital team at VICTORIA'S SECRET. She is currently the Art Director at MM.LAFLEUR, where she oversees the brand's creative projection, from branding to e-commerce to photography. In her spare time, she enjoys wandering aimlessly, cooking, getting crafty, listening to music, puns, and Dad jokes.
