Design is more than working on aesthetics, it is also about thinking strategically in each project, understanding its origin and objectives, developing it, and communicating it in an engaging and impactful manner.

Design is the art of planning, and it is the art of making things possible.

About me

I am a senior Designer with experience in the areas of print design/production, visual design and brand design. Over the last 8 years I have developed comprehensive projects with a positive impact in the areas of brand design, identity and products, especially in the wine industry at Casa Santos Lima, in collaboration with marketing, sales and administration teams.

Working as a designer is more than working on aesthetics, it is thinking strategically about each project, understanding the origin, objectives and communicating it in an engaging and striking way for various platforms and points of contact with consumers.
