Dasha Rakasovic

Associate Art Director

Dasha was born to possibly the two least creative people out there—her dad’s all numbers, her mom’s a practical worker—but in spite of this, she grew a passion for art and design. A woman of few words, she speaks with her visual language skills, making her observations through design. After completing her degree in Communication Design from Texas State University, she first joined the Wyatt Brand team as an intern, liking it so much she then stayed on as junior designer. At Wyatt Brand, she spends her time working mainly on web projects and print design while trying not to take herself too seriously.

Dasha’s thing is taking long naps as she dreams about red panda bears. WHAT’S YOURS?
