Luisa Henao

Hola, I’m Luisa, a graphic designer from Colombia currently based in Brooklyn. I believe in the power of design as a tool to start conversations, make complex topics more accessible, and mobilize people towards a common goal. I received my MFA in Design Authorship and Entrepreneurship from the School of Visual Arts in 2015, and have experience working on printed matter, editorial, branding, and motion graphic projects for diverse clients such as UN Women, the Knight Foundation, the Parkinsons Foundation, the International Book Fair of Bogotá, and a number of independent visual artists.

When I am not designing, I can be found exploring new neighborhoods on my bike, cooking for friends and friends of friends, or in nature. Always in the company of a good book and a cup of tea.
