About me

I'm Diana, a brand design & photography creative; with a love for innovation, elegance & the peculiar. I have a background in Brand Design, Fashion and Photography and experience in art direction, photography, branding and social media. I created content mostly for fashion, beauty, music and lifestyle industries. Elegant, high-end branding and quirky, innovative one are the two design directions dear to my heart. Currently working as a brand designer for a skincare start-up company (Derma Organics), I design the packaging, liaise with the printing companies and create assets for social media, website banners and any branding collateral. Moreover, I organise, photograph & art direct photo-shoots from the concept stage up until the final imagery for social media & branding.   Previously I was an art director at Jelingu Creates (London based agency) where I kick started my career and art directed projects for the creative industries.
