Design is so simple, that’s why it’s so complicated.
— Paul Rand —
I’m a graphic designer with an emphasis in cultural mediation. As a Colombian, I am inspired by many aspects of my culture, which has inspired an interest in creative, culturally-informed and human-centered design. I specialize in visualizing human rights data, community-collected and qualitative data, ‘humanizing’ quantitative datasets, and developing visualizations for fact-checking initiatives. Furthermore, I have developed social projects in museums through use of inclusive methodologies of design. Helping minorities in disadvantaged positions and collaborating on projects involving the empowerment of women are my main motivations.
I am Co-founder of “El poder de elegir”, a disinformation monitoring project during the electoral period, an initiative that uses WhatsApp as its main means of communication with its audiences. It was replicated in Venezuela, Mexico and now in Brazil O Poder de Eleger.
