︎︎︎An independent Senior Graphic Designer, Visual Artist and Mom from Florianópolis, Brasil. Based in Brooklyn - New York City. I’ve spent more than a decade harnessing systematic creative thinking to craft visuals, making ideas come to the material world, and believing in design as a tool for transformation, social impact and culture shaper. Along this journey, I've worked together with big and small clients, nonprofits and commissioned works. My Design practice specializes in creating identities and visual systems, editorial, packaging, printing and creative direction. I specially love making and thinking all the things I can get my hands on. My interests are married to how I understand the world at large, leading to an array of autonomous projects like self-publications. 

︎︎︎ I hold a BA in 'Communication Design', from ESPM-SP and 'Graphic Design and the Cities'  Post-Graduation at Escola da Cidade, together with Celso Longo and Daniel Trench as coordinators.

︎︎︎ I, also, co-funded a periodic art & design publication project, Periódico-Periódico, and funded an independent publishing and editorial platform, Satélite Books.
