Ushadesign is an independent and individual graphic design studio created by Camille Barrios that focuses on branding, identity and editorial design. I aim to create human centered relationships with my clients, helping them achieve their goals through market relevant, applied creativity. And when the projects need it, I call upon my network of trusted collaborators for additional resources and specialized skills.
I offer a multidisciplinary approach: from identities to graphic design projects for print and web, digital, consulting, art direction and publishing expertise. I research unusual visual solutions, typographic details and unexpected materials that make the communication process more distinctive. I believe in abstraction, simplicity, synergy, emotional impact and goal-oriented as keywords to my design approach.
