I'm a graphic designer based in Toronto, Canada. I have studied Graphic Design for Print & Web at Humber, working on several distinct projects which gave me experience in different areas of graphic design.
I also have a degree in languages and literature, and because of that I've always had a firm belief in the importance of effective and clear communication, which is something I make sure to incorporate in my creations. Due to my degree and my interest in reading, I also have knowledge on books and storytelling, a factor that can make a difference in a design for a brand. I usually make simple designs, preferring to use less details to avoid confusion, while still making something impactful with the smart use of colors. I'm mostly specialized in editorial design, also with experience on digital marketing.
Débora is a name originated from Hebrew, meaning bee and hard-working woman. I believe this to be a good representation of myself since I'm always working hard, which is why I also thought that a good visual for myself would be a bee.
