Creative Director & Owner
Clarissa was born and raised in the most beautiful city in the world, Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)! There, she's received her first degree in Graphic Design (BFA) from the National School of Fine Arts (UFRJ).
She's an "old school" graphic designer, as her training was based off of the Bauhaus School (the very first school of Design in the world). She's trained in both fine arts and design. However, her true passion has always been graphic design. In the early 2000s, she relocated to the US to pursue a Master's in Graphic Design, which has opened many doors for her professionally. Throughout her career of more than 20 years, she's designed for numerous multinational companies, like Turner Entertainment Co (Cartoon Network) and Shell Oil, as well as for small businesses.
Clarissa loves to work in Upstate, SC, as it is home to some of the most interesting and awesome clients ever. Here, she's designed new packaging for Poppington's in Downtown Greenville, as well as worked on Prime Realty's branding, print and digital collateral. More recently, she's designed the Greater Mauldin Chamber of Commerce's new website. Clarissa has also been a Professor of Graphic Design since 2007.
Her work has been recognized in national and international design competitions, and her photography has been displayed in a number of exhibitions in the US and abroad.
