About Danielle Gracioso

Danielle Gracioso

GRAPHIC DESIGNER

Hey there! I am Danielle Gracioso

Born in Brazil, and now based in Vancouver, BC - Canada. With eight years of experience in the areas of graphic design and digital design, I have participated in several projects at different stages of the life cycle, complexity, levels of secrecy and billing, which developed my resilience, technical reasoning and a macro view of the entire process due to my ease of interaction with the marketing area.

My work in the print world started when I worked as a Print Designer at a large-format print shop. With great interest in working on a variety of different projects I turned my gaze to the digital with the development of layouts for websites, apps and product design. Until then I decided to launch my own design studio in 2016 - and since then I've been able to help brands visually tell their stories.

I treat with importance an excellent interpersonal relationship, being very pleased to be able to share knowledge, learn new ways and technology to solve problems, in addition to exchanging experiences over a good coffee.

Expertise

I am focused on design and development.
I do it with attention to detail.

Branding and Visual Identity

I create graphic design projects using branding tools to reach brands that are part of the company culture. I develop visual identities for projects and initiatives, which may include the development of a comprehensive suite of materials for different communications channels, of print, social media, web, other digital materials for multiple departments, including sourcing of images, creation of custom illustrations and infographics, and managing production via the internal print shop and outside suppliers.

Product Design

When designing products, I work to strike a balance between business objectives, user needs, and technical feasibility. In previous jobs, I have worked at startups helping them tell the brand's story by creating a beautiful product that meets user demand. I am a hands-on designer who can produce compelling design concepts, interactive prototypes and refine visual designs throughout the development process. And what I do not know how to do, I am willing to learn.

Web Design

I edit HTML and CSS, where I develop websites that communicate and inspire. Within an institutional project, a store or a hotsite, I always consider content as the main tool, so we can combine technology with information architecture, usability and design.

Packaging Labels

The packaging is fundamental in how your product is perceived and directly influences its consumption, positioning the brand and its value proposition. When producing this material, it is important to pay attention to the regulations for each sector of the industry and which rules must be met. Using various techniques, all the necessary specifications have been made, with an eye for detail and producing labels that make a difference when selling.

Illustration

I make Illustrations to give life, accompany or synthesize content and where I can apply it in packaging design projects, posters, children's books, teaching materials and editorial projects: technicians, manuals and characters.

Multiple tasks

I have the ability to meet tight deadlines and learn new programs and skills. I like challenges and I do my best to prepare myself for them. Recently I've been studying User Experience, Design Thinking and Video Editing.

Spare time and volunteering

In my free time, I like to walk around looking around and take analog pictures with my beloved La Sardina 35mm, I enjoy feeling the adrenaline of participating and winning Hackathons, I love learning a new Rockabilly Jive step, I trying new techinicals like paper illustration and enjoying a delicious cup of coffee as I remember when I driving my 1973 Corcel.

I contributed as a volunteer in the development of digital arts for social media: Facebook and Instagram, and in the treatment of photos of the meetings. The Guerra de Ilustrações (Illustration War) is a project that promotes monthly meetings between illustrators with the aim of fostering the culture of illustration in the city (Londrina-PR, Brazil).
