ABOUT ME & MY WORK
I'm a graphic designer whose passion focuses on creating work that unites information, beauty and function. I believe design can improve people's lives, whether it's through an increase in sales, a beautiful piece of art on the wall, an educational campaign developed with researchers, or the marketing of a truly impactful product or service.
I was born in São Paulo, Brazil, and moved to a small nearby beach town called Praia Grande when I was 9, starting drawing lessons there. At age 14, I relocated with my family to Florida, and decided there could be no better place in the world for going into the creative field. I attended Ringling College of Art + Design in Sarasota, where I majored in Graphic Design with a minor in Business. I've since relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina.
Throughout the years I've dedicated myself to volunteerism and activism alongside my creative endeavors, and one day I hope to combine my two passions into one. I also really enjoy music, trying my hand at a few different instruments and even singing in choirs from time to time. I am a shamelessly self-identified cat lady, and occasionally a spandex-wearing cyclist as well.
FREELANCE DESIGN & COMMISSIONS
If you would like to contact me about possibly collaborating, working together, a project or a commission, feel free to use the form below. I offer a free, no commitment consultation over coffee (or your beverage of choice) right here in Charlotte, NC or anywhere in the world via video call. I would love to hear about your vision and creative needs, and come up with the best services to fit your budget and goals. Some services I have provided include:
Website hosting, wire-framing, domain purchase & design (WordPress, Wix, Squarespace)
Brand identity packages, including brand guides, logos, stationery, business cards and large print items;
Marketing strategies such as handbooks, brand or campaign development, social media calendars, PR training;
Presentation decks, booklets, brochures, informational graphics, charts & data visualization;
Drawings, paintings, photo-editing, photo manipulation, digital or traditional;
Gifs, short animations, slideshows;
Email campaigns, digital advertising design;
Print advertisements, marketing collateral, invitations, flyers, posters;
Merchandising design, such as t-shirts, hats, hoodies, tote bags, etc;
But how much do you charge? While I understand budgets are tight for most small business and self-employed clients of mine, it is nearly impossible to give a one-size-fits-all price for my services. This is exactly why I offer a no-commitment, free consultation call. I have designed logos for $50, and some for $500. I have designed websites for $400, and some for thousands of dollars. It all depends on how complex your vision is, how much research and resources I will need to put into your vision, and what you want your final product to be used for. After our initial conversation, you may decide to utilize my services, put some more resources towards your ideas before committing, or re-envisioning your marketing needs altogether. I am here to help.
This is the best way to get a hold of me. Please be as descriptive or as vague as you'd like, and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
