ciao

I'm Marina,
interdisciplinary designer and creative explorer striving for the ideal of a world of well-crafted, thoughtfully designed and effectively communicated objects/services that address real needs, connect emotionally with their end-users and enhance the perceived value of the brand or reference.

I am the founder of nirama.design, independent design studio focusing on integrated design systems across graphics, products, digital and spaces.
