Biography

Art Director/

Graphic Designer

Overview

Suzanne is a Brooklyn-based designer interested in the ways graphic design can provide clarity, spark curiosity and generate wonder. She’s passionate about color, photography, illustration and language. She’s committed to the practice of structuring stories and even the most basic information in a thoughtful aesthetic, with an eye for beauty.

She was influenced by the vibrancy and free spirit of her childhood home in Brazil, with its tropical palette and commitment to pleasure and joy. From her time spent dodging snakes in the Amazon and jumping waves in the Atlantic, she developed a strong connection to nature. She caught a love for architecture and history from her time spent in school in London. And in San Francisco, she studied design at the California College of the Arts, where she learned to shape ideas and speak the language of intentionality.

Dedication

For Antonie

de Saint-Exupéry

The Little Prince is the first book that I remember reading on my own. It astonished my seven-year-old self, giving me a lifelong love of reading. It also showed me that cultivating imagination, noticing beauty, and tending to love are just as vital to our survival.

“Let the beauty
we love be
what we do

There are
hundreds of ways
to kneel & kiss
the ground.”

Rumi
