Cori Magee graduated from FIDM with a degree in Interior Design and began working at a top hospitality design firm. When the economy forced much of the design world out of work, it turned out to be a blessing for Cori. She created her own design blog, “Pretty Haute Mess” (prettyhautemess.com) to stay inspired and involved with design. In doing so, she discovered not only a whole new network of designers, but she also discovered her love for digital media. Cori recently completed a certificate in Graphic Design.
