Delaware College of Art and Design is delighted that its retail space at 706 N. Market St. is the new home for downtown staple Spaceboy Clothing. The relocation of Spaceboy from its previous 711 N. Market St. address commenced in January and was completed in time for the store’s 10th anniversary celebration, which included a grand reopening concert on March 1. The “one-stop shop for locally made graphic tees, custom clothing, vintage goods and more” debuted at a site on Kirkwood Highway in 2009 before moving first to 617 N. Market St. and then to 711 as the business, owned by Noah Merenda and David Sanchez, grew and evolved.
Danielle Miller earned an associate’s degree in graphic design from DCAD in 2017. Before graduating, the Maryland native landed a spring semester/summer internship with DLS Discovery, located a short walk from the College, through a speed-interviewing session conducted on campus with a range of local employers. Less than a year after starting at DLS, Danielle parlayed her temporary opportunity into a permanent, full-time position as the design and print manager for the company’s growing marketing operations. Since then, Danielle has coordinated several design and/or print projects for DCAD as a client. In addition, she recently joined the College’s Strategic Planning Steering Committee as an alumni representative.
