Hi, I'm Maria. I'm a graphic designer / art director based in New York.
Born & raised in Bulgaria, I owe my life in the States to a series of fortunate events. I take nothing for granted.
My studies led me from languages and literature to design, where practical necessities overrule and contain my proclivities towards poetic and visual excess. I have a gratuitous Master's in Comparative Literature and speak
8 languages — the realm of the foreign is familiar to me. My adult life has been about making bridges, crossing barriers and making foreign things familiar, near and ownable. Design is about capturing the imagination, but in a practical way. Abstract concepts receive direct and swift expression. A challenge I adore.
I've worked for and with the following:
Johnson & Johnson
Lloyd & Co
The Apartment Agency
Simon Property Group
Stag & Hare
If you'd like to work together, or just say hello, please get in touch!
