DESIGN & TYPE

CLAUDIA RIVERA

ART DIRECTOR

Currently working for Tinkah Studio, a branding  and experience design firm, Claudia manages the  Art Direction for both the UK and the UAE office. Initially qualifying in graphic design and going  on to Master in typography, she now holds 15 years experience operating in various job roles around the globe. 

With a Mexican heritage and a transient lifestyle, she focusses her attention on exploring type as a primary form of expression, not just communication. Over the years she has developed a unique aesthetic that celebrates historic forms of type treatments and also encourages freehand as the most personal median within type design.
