Back in 2009, Mica May decided life was too short for ugly notebooks. A graphic designer by trade, she whipped up some patterned notebooks for herself and began taking them to client meetings.
After others started taking notice of these "May Books," she knew she could scale them for the masses. Soon after, she launched a second company called May Books, now known as May Designs.
After 10 years in business, Mica has become known for her entrepreneurial spirit, business savvy, and whimsical, yet realistic approach to what it takes to power an ecommerce-based company. Check out her media features below!
