Dominique Zonyeé

A seasoned journalist, copywriter, producer, and lifetime creative navigating through the concrete jungle was humbling. The determination and resilience of hustlers, go-getters, strivers, and survivors in pursuit of identity and purpose in the big city always inspired me. 

Driven by my passion for storytelling and infatuation with brand architecture, I created Apartment 1A for disrupters, fire starters, game-changers, rockstars, and innovative underdogs looking to shift the narrative and leverage change and inclusivity in any industry. 

With Apartment 1A, I’m on a mission to educate business owners, startups, and entrepreneurs on the power of branding. My goal is to build genuine connections between brands and the people that fuel them.




In 2010 after receiving my art degree in Product Development & Design from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, FIDM, I launched

H E R S T O R Y.   A multi-platform brand destination for women seeking inspiration, passion, and culture to feed the soul, sharpen the spirit, and inspire them to live in their purpose.

Through H E R S T O R Y, I evolved into Deanna Snow Design Studios to solely focus on building strong brands with an emphasis on brand strategy and brand development.


When I design, I aim for refined aesthetics by gracefully removing distractions to reveal clean, polished designs that emotionally connect brands to their audiences.
