Miriam Wornette

I have recently graduated from OCAD with a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design. I am also greatly interested in photography. I joined the WORN design team was because it is a different sort of journal, one that I had never come across before. A lot of my inspiration comes from international sources: magazines, blogs, TV shows, etc. For my personal fashion inspiration, I enjoy looking through UK magazines or reading Swedish blogs. Or I look back at old photos of my parents and create styles through their ’70s and ’80s fashion.

My favourite artists are Goya and Aubrey Beardsley. I love re-watching Rambo and Rocky. My diet includes Reese’s chocolate and cream cheese bagels. I enjoy reading, boxing, and just recently took up tap dancing! Gene Kelly has been my inspiration since I was five years old, and I finally got a chance to try it.

Current Inspirations:

Mogollon
Typography, logos, editorial. So amazing you just want to sit at your computer and cry.

Faith
#1: It’s Canadian. #2: Who knew someone could make typography so exciting that you want to stare at it all day?

Pogo
One day I will move to Argentina and meet this amazing team of designers. Type and editorial, drooling in front of the screen sort of work.

Wolves & Bucks
Tony (Buck) and Adeline (Wolf) live in France, and document their daily lives and fashion.

Keiko Lynn
After looking through her blog of daily outfits, you just want to become best friends and go shopping together.
