Today we’d like to introduce you to Marjan Sattarzadeh.
Marjan, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I have always been captivated by color and texture and how people were affected by and interacted with their surroundings. I studied Interior Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design and worked in New York City for the first five years of my career. I spent my 20’s traveling as much as I could. My inspiration comes from travel, nature and my background as an Iranian American.

His cookbook makes the pizza process approachable and fun, giving the reader the tools they need to make better pizza and then run with them. First providing a clear and simple view of the fundamentals—with detailed step-by-step methods for making the best pizza doughs—Schwartz then empowers home cooks to mix and match ingredients, playing with different sauces, cheeses, meats, vegetables, and more, to build pies both classic and innovative. Pizza is just the beginning—it’s a jumping off point to colorful, delicious meals.

Marjan is the owner and lead designer at Jan, a sustainability-driven, Miami-based studio and shop sourcing unique homeware pieces from India (where she travels to and from in order to find the perfect items.) In addition to a well-curated collection, Jan also provides services including interior design, custom design work, concept development and branding. While being a designer and curator often seems like an exciting (and TBH, aesthetically-pleasing) occupation, Marjan’s interview shines a light on the long hours, hard work and not-so-glamorous aspects that her role demands.
