This is Marina, a Brand & Visual Communication Consultant, Strategist, Designer and Developer with 10+ years of international experience.
I was born from Italian-Japanese parents, grew up in Milan (Italy), and I am currently based in Cape Town, South Africa.
I graduated in Communication Design at Politecnico di Milano in 2010 and have been designing, learning and creating since.
I worked as a graphic designer and art director for international creative and marketing agencies in Milan, London and Cape Town, helping small and big brands to find their visual language; alongside freelancing for numerous individuals, businesses and agencies for the past 12 years.
Marina Araki Design is the product of the experience and know-how I have cultivated through over a decade of curiosity and passion for design.
