hi! i'm clara, a graphic designer and illustrator from brazil. i work at the Brazilian based organisation coding rights and currently also freelance in berlin.
with an aptitude for collaborative design projects, i aim for politically engaged design practices.
i hold a BA in design, Esdi-UERJ (school of design in the state university of rio de janeiro), where i have also dedicated myself as a researcher at the design and anthropology lab. as a researcher, i investigate participatory and codesign processes as as platforms for activism and debate on emerging social and political issues, particularly those regarding gender and its intersectionalities.
in six years of freelancing, i have gathered experience through a diversity of projects and contexts. in the past few years, i have focused on projects developed in the intersection of technology and gender inequalities, collaborating with organisations such as superrr network, disruption network lab, simply secure, coding rights, ashoka germany, heinrich böll stifftung and kampnagel.
i'd be happy to chat about possible collaborations!
