Larissa Pickens is a freelance web designer
working with a range of clients from Calvin Klein, Scholastic, Estee
Lauder, and Conde Nast to start-up businesses and individuals. She met
Lina in the Design and Technology MFA program at Parsons School of
Design — back when pulling an all-nighter meant debugging a project,
instead of wrangling a cranky baby.
