Marketing & Communications Lead
Global

Dina Shirin

Dina Shirin has a background in marketing, working in publishing prior to her global marketing & communications role at Shillington. She enjoys working on photo-based projects and is a member of two photography collectives. She’s also a #ShilloNY graduate from 2014 and is inspired by the talents of Shillington graduates and teachers across all campuses. Her big passion is travelling to new places and discovering the culture of each city that she visits.

What do you love about design?

I love that you can create something that didn’t exist before! There is design inspiration all around. I am drawn to the unique signage, street art and architecture across all the different cities I visit.

What or who are you loving right now?

Blinkist! It’s a brilliant app that lets you read or listen to the key points of a book within 15 minutes. Their massive library has a great variety of books across many genres.

If you were a typeface, what would you be?

Mostra Nuova. I love this typeface because it’s based on the lettering of Italian Art Deco posters of the 1930’s.

What are your favourite blogs and podcasts? 

FeatureshootLensCultureThe Phoblographer and The Observers are great photo blogs. The Great Discontent has great interviews with creatives. I also enjoy the podcasts, Tim Ferriss,  Hurry Slowly and The Moth.

What keeps you busy outside of Shillington? 

Photography projects, going to art shows and whipping up new recipes while experimenting in the kitchen.
