Hi I’m Whitney Hodge, originally from the Boston suburbs and spending the summer living in Syracuse, NY. I am a soon-to-be Junior at Syracuse University and currently 10Red’s greatest (and also first) intern of all time. When I’m not slaving over designing end caps and floor clings, I spend my time skateboarding, running and cooking with my roommates. One cool fact about me is that I have spatial sequence synesthesia which means I visualize time around my head like a map. On top of being a designer, I’m an artist with a love of painting, drawing and music, and although I’m no talented musician, I’d like to say what I lack in skill I make up in great taste.
I find inspiration in design of all kinds and am influenced everyday by brilliant artists and designers such as Paula Scher, Simon Jacquemus and Virgil Abloh.
My mantra in life is that everything happens for a reason which isn’t meant to be fatal or pessimistic, I’ve just experienced some crazy uncanny coincidences in my life so I stick by those words every day.
