Hi! Hey! Hello!

I'm Raluca. The name is Romanian and yes, I am Romanian. Almost my entire and huge extended family and I immigrated to NYC when I was 3.5. It's a great story, which I would love to tell you one day.

I feel so lucky to be working as a Designer. Throughout my career I’ve pushed myself to learn, grow and develop different points of view and skills by working in a variety of industries. I’ve worked on editorial design for the largest publisher in Australia, package design for a global skincare and beauty company, at a global innovation consultancy where I learned to simultaneously be an audacious and empathic designer. My most ambitious project to date was designing and opening Merriweather Coffee + Kitchen in the West Village with my husband. You could say it’s the family business!

In my element: traveling, discovering cultures, traditions, architecture and delicious food.

cities in the world, having been inhabited since the 10th millennium BC. It was the 2019 European Capital of Culture.
