Make clever simple

and simple clever.

Hi! My name is Barbara and I am a graphic and web designer based in London. I recently worked for a busy web agency where I dealt mostly with advertising, brand/corporate identity and web design.

I’m a great believer in simplicity and in the use of few, well-chosen visual elements to achieve the best result.

I am proficient in a broad range of applications and I am also passionate about illustration and photography.

Have a look at my portfolio to see a selection of my recent projects.

Even though designing is the hobby I enjoy the most, when I'm not working I love: enjoying live music / reading in cosy cafes / travelling / experimenting with lomography / annoying my bass.

I am also available for freelance design work, get in touch if you have any questions!

The best thing about creating something

is that it starts living its own life.

/ 'gra-ree-ge /

Grarighe / 'gra-ree-ge / is a fusion of the words gra-ndioso (great), gra-fico (graphic) and righe (lines).
Grarighe was born when I came across a fantastic illustration, so beautiful, so indescribable, that I felt compelled to create a new word to capture it. Since that day I have always used that word every time I was stunned by a spectacular form of art and design, every time I was hypnotized by simple but clever work, where lines and shapes combined to achieve the perfect balance.

My aim is to create grarighe with every project I undertake.
