Skills: Graphic Design

Adriana is a talented graphic designer who studied Graphic Design at the Universidad Finis Terrae, graduating in 2011. After 2 years working as a Brand Creator at Futurebrand (McCann Erickson). She decided to move to Melbourne in 2014 and pursue her career as a freelancer.

Adriana has worked with fashion and food brands to breathe life and colour into their brand identity including Rise and Dawn BakehouseMies the Label and Muchachas Cantina.

She is a creative and hard-working person who never stops learning from others with experience and knowledge in their field. She also loves learning about brands and diving into their story just to come up with creative concepts. She has delved deep into the true origins of coffee beans (its origins are from Ethiopia but it was actually in Yemen were the coffee beans were first roasted and ground for the first time) to design a logo for a coffee company and will give you that same level of commitment and curiosity when it comes to working with your brand. 

I was first introduced to Adriana whilst looking for a web designer for my new Melbourne based start-up to create dresses online. I was immediately impressed with how well Adriana understood the concept, the aesthetic and the image that my company was looking for. In our first meeting Adriana was able to capture and name the essence of our idea, Mies, later to become Miesthelabel Pty Ltd.

From early conception to launch, Adriana has worked above and beyond in creating the Mies brand. Her extraordinary creative talents are evident in both the style and colour of the website and packaging, as well as her unique ability to understand the client’s needs in creating a logo, monogram and custom website consistent with theme of mid-century design.

It has been a pleasure and professional privilege to work with Adriana and look forward to collaborating with her in the future.
