ABOUT
Raísa is a designer and Art Director based in Sao Paulo, Brazil. From 2017 to 2021, she worked as an Art Director @ FLAGCX (CUBOCC NY and SOKO).

She's currently working as Senior Creative Designer @ Nubank.

Raísa also co-founded Efêmmera, a network of entrepreneurship and appreciation of female protagonism in street culture. Efêmmera also promotes encounters between established and rising artists, prepares them for professional opportunities, and empowers them through their work with commissions for brands, street art, murals, talks, exhibitions, and art curatorship.

In 2015, she was awarded a full-time scholarship to study Graphic Design at The Maryland Institute College of Art by the Federal Government of Brazil.

Raísa is a person with a dynamic eye and who brings good solutions to the projects she engages in, always striving for respect and the best delivery. She's always a curious and thought-provoking person in the search for results beyond the simple and expected. She likes to plan and processes that improve her day-to-day work and combines function with art in the direction of the projects in which she is involved. She is a strongly opinionated person who knows how to deal with differences and show her point of view.
