Hello! I’m Maria, an energetic, active, creatively wired individual. Growing up as a third culture kid has made me develop a strong backbone that adapts positively to wherever I am. I have immersed myself in six completely different cultures and I have two mother tongues. Over the past three years I have gained agency experience working in Singapore, Leeds, London and Copenhagen.

Having recently graduated from The University of Leeds with a BA Graphic Communication & Design degree it is safe to say I am excited and ready for the next chapter of my life!

Having always strived to make a social change in my life it is within my university experience year that I challenged myself to choose the more complex briefs that hit home for the greater good. Great design starts with a great core idea, which can empathise with individuals, and hopes to evoke change in behaviours. I am bursting with enthusiasm and readiness to tackle new challenges and acquire new skills.

Thanks for popping by and feel free to get in contact with any of the social links below on the right corner!
