Danielle Coughlin is a graphic designer and artist who creates online identities for other businesses at her design hub, www.dcmedia-design.com. "This is my passion," says Coughlin. "But I'm not even a year old -- I turn one next month, so I'm hoping to build this up." Because we are so interested in the entrepreneurship and ingenuity of up-and-coming artists, we sat down with Danielle to ask her a few questions. About other stuff.
Westword: What do you do if life hands you lemonade?
Danielle Coughlin: I squirt it in sombody's eye. Or, I make a lemonade and blueberry vodka drink. It's my new favorite.
Green-blue, blue-green or teal?
Those three are probably my favorite colors, but I love the color of teal.
Do you think the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles could sew a patchwork quilt in under an hour?
Hell yeah. They could do that in their sleep.
Did you have a favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle?
I think I liked the orange one.
Bob Ross or Mr. Rogers in a Thunderdome Deathmatch?
Bob Ross all the way! He so would just scare the competition, him and his happy trees.
What does broccoli taste like?
Delicious and healthy. I love broccoli and eat it all the time, but it's an acquired taste. Probably.
What does your cat dream of? Probably mice and lizards. And me. Because she loves me.
Did you know Ricky Martin was gay before he told everyone?
Uh, I assumed so. His music videos didn't help him out very much, either.
Know any good jokes?
Why don't cannibals eat clowns?
Because they taste funny.
If a tree falls in the forest, and you're not around to hear it, what noise does it make?
Hmmm... I don't have anything funny to say. Can we take this question out?
Yes, of course.
Any last words?
Thanks to all of my clients and everyone who helped me utilize my passion of graphic design and website design.
