olá!

I am Catarina Guimarães, a Brazilian designer living in Chicago with an interest in storytelling, architectural experience design, and cultural theory. My background is in Architecture, but I have taken an unconventional approach to designing the built environment. I currently work as a Branded Environments Designer, specializing in the design and application of branding and wayfinding strategies for a variety of architecture projects and spaces. 

- The study and manifestation of users and their cultural paradigms craft meaningful Design; one which inspires, transcends physical dissolution, and leaves behind significant ideas alluding to traces of what once was form. -
