As the Editor-in-Chief and Creative Director, Daniel Tran was first introduced to the fine art of handiwork and design at the tender age of 11 from his Vietnamese immigrant mother who worked as a seamstress. It was from these humble, but creatively entrepreneurial beginnings that he would develop a love for the world of visual design. Through his MFA program at the Academy of Art of San Francisco, Daniel has mastered typography as well as created a compelling portfolio that showcases a wide range of projects. From brand development to book publishing, his work has appeared on ad campaigns, fashion lookbooks, industry websites, and the runway for prominent clients. When he is not designing, Daniel can be found sipping his favorite cup of green tea as he ruminates over typography and the latest trends in fashion.
As the Managing Editor, Chandara is the voice behind Geraldine Magazine, while simultaneously strategizing on social media channels. Her love for weddings and the written word began over childhood Beverly Cleary books and moments spent swooning over the design details of gowns from her mother’s stash of wedding magazines. It was only after planning her own wedding in two different states nearly 10 years ago that Chandara realized how much she adored the world of wedding design. After earning her MBA in marketing and strategic management, she joined the Geraldine team because it was the perfect balance between her passion for creativity and business. When she’s not chasing after her toddler, you will probably find Chandara at her local pilates studio or perusing the most recent edition of Donna Hay’s food styling magazine.
