Hi, I’m Laura Cibilich, a designer based in Auckland, New Zealand. I’m obsessed with type and love the smell of fresh print on a page. I started my own design studio, Designstein in 2008, specialising in typography and branding. When not immersing myself in art and design I can be found swimming, enjoying chocolate or hanging out with my husband Raymond.

MyDailyDesign.com is a self-initiated project and blog. Inspired by other daily design projects I decided to set myself a challenge of designing the date every day for a whole year throughout 2012. Since New Zealand is one of the first countries to welcome each day it made sense to base my daily designs on the date. Every day I’ll be posting the date. Each day will be written in a different way in a range of different media. Why am I doing this? To practice and develop my creative skills in design, photography and illustration, as well as to teach myself WordPress.
