Mattie Derrico


Mattie Derrico feels as though she is not from this planet and thus uses her “out of this world” mind to influence her life and graphic design work. Last May she earned her BFA in Graphic Design at The College of Saint Rose in Albany NY, where she worked many sleepless nights, and was taught by a talented and caring group of design professors. Today you can find her walking through Times Square on the way to work at a job she couldn’t have more perfectly imagined ‒ a designer for MTV Networks/LOGO. She believes that creativity is key and will never be able to look at anything the same without judging its design (thanks to her teachers). Mattie wouldn’t be where she is today without her mom and sister.
