Hi, I am Nivea Nunes, a Brazilian designer currently living in Phoenix – Arizona. Over the past 14 years, I have helped other companies build their brand identity or create packaging for products and now get into the print and pattern design world.

I work as a freelance graphic and packaging designer since 2009, and I always knew that I would work with something creative because I was curious. I love to learn new things, and I’m always looking to understand the processes, the people, how things happen and are built. I feel this powerful passion inside me since I was a child. That is why I studied Communication Design at the Pontifical Catholic University of Goiás in Brazil; I was amazed and happy to have chosen the profession of my dreams. I think everything is incredible inside the design industry, and I love to unravel the “mysteries” to be solved with solutions that match the client’s needs.

I love being a designer because, in every new project, I can learn something different. Every time I need to research my client’s industry and what his/her/their needs are, this curiosity and willingness to learn leaves my heart full of happiness and makes me love everything I do as a designer. My favorite part of being a designer is to use originality and authenticity applied to my client’s identity.

I hope to use my passion for your project and bring you great results to grow your company. You can find me on Instagram as @niveanunes, or email me:
