PROFILE

Hi! I'm Daniela, a Communication Designer with a great passion for branding, editorial design and illustrations. I love to incorporate colour, research and many sketches to the projects I work on.

The world of print was my first love, but I must confess that I am also into the digital world, I don't want to choose one over the other so I happily jump between print and digital depending on the needs of a project.

BACKGROUND

I'm a Colombian-born designer based in Vancouver. I got a degree in Communication Design from Emily Carr University of Art & Design. During my studies I was part of Woo Publication, first as a designer and then as a creative director; thanks to my work at Woo I fall in love with print and editorial design.

I also worked as a research assistant with the Health Design Lab at Emily Carr were I got to work on two different projects where I learn to apply human-centered research methodologies to problems in healthcare.

After graduating I worked a couple of years at Tickit Health. I had the opportunity to create a strong visual identity for Tickit and assist the company to improve their app-web based platform.
