About me

Call me Luci, Lulubelle, Lucia.

Hi, my name is Luci. I have dark hair (always varying on the short side) and  sometimes trade my glasses in for contacts. I’m a sucker for all things matchy-matchy and the colour green - because plants 🌿 I am clumsy, yet steady handed with a paintbrush. Drawing makes me happy - design gives me purpose.

My mother always had a remedy for boredom - art. It was simple, you could either help around the house or keep yourself busy with a blank piece of paper. I always chose the latter, sorry mom.

I now enjoy translating information into visual languages and systems that aid understanding and support contextual conversations. Finding shape and form to represent brands, processes, ideas and messages brings focus to my creativity.
