After five years of practicing graphic design in Mexico City, I came to Canada looking for a broader understanding of design and new life perspectives. For this purposes I joined the Institute without Boundaries (IwB) where I spent a year learning about design research, community outreach and strategic planning to propose a revitalization plan for a low-income housing neighbourhood in Toronto.
It has been three years since I arrived to Toronto and I have already played a variety of roles including strategic designer, researcher, language translator, facilitator and art director.
I have also collaborated in freelance projects related to editorial, identity and web design for firms like Studio Blackwell, Bruce Mau Design, and Daniels School of Architecture.
I am currently teaching a new course on Graphic Design for Social Media at George Brown College and I am available for freelance projects.
