About me
I’m Malini (she/her), a freelance graphic designer and illustrator, with a weakness for bright color palettes and an obsession for typography. I specialize in brand identities, logo design, and packaging design for small and medium businesses, as I love listening to people’s stories and the reasons behind their paths.
