Marla Bernstein was born and raised in New Orleans, LA but left in 2013 to attend college at the University of Colorado Boulder. There, she found her love for creative technical design and pursued a Bachelors of Science in Technology, Arts & Media from the School of Engineering in Web Development. After graduating in 2017, she packed a backpack, booked a one-way ticket to China and set out on an epic 13 month adventure around the world, where she started a personal travel brand, which launched her into the world of photography, social media marketing and blogging. After returning home with so much inspiration and passion for design, she quickly enrolled in Tulane’s Post Baccalaureate Program in Digital Design to pursue a certificate focused heavily on Graphic Design where she graduated in December 2021. After graduation, Marla started her own marketing firm, Midnight Marketing, that helps small businesses with branding & graphic design, social media marketing, digital marketing & advertising, website design & development, photography and more.
