Hi, I'm Shayna Hodkin aka Coolfunparty

My CV is here


I'm the Managing Editor of InVision's design publication, Inside Design

The nuSchool will forever be my pride and joy

I write essays, book reviews, and advice columns

I give talks about design, freelancing, personal branding, and building community

Every week I send out two newsletters: Telavegan, a weekly vegan recipe, and Coolfunreads, which is exactly what it sounds like
