Buenos Aires office
Born in Maracaibo, Venezuela, Emma grew up in an inspiring environment. As a girl, she liked to read her grandfather’s National Geographic and browse her mother’s architecture magazines. This was the root of her immense curiosity for everything – arts, sciences, philosophy, cultures – and a concern for pursuing stimuli and knowledge. Emma prefers to listen first before speaking, with the firm belief that there is always something you can learn from others. She likes challenges and, if she does not know how to do something, she looks for a solution on her own.
Emma always knew that her thing was creativity, whatever the medium. When the moment came to choose a career, between arts and design, she chose design for its usefulness. Design encompasses all of Emma’s interests: creating, organising, communicating, and sharing, all in a stimulating and visually-attractive format.
After finishing her career in 2016 she worked for a print media agency for a short time, before moving on to working in digital media as a freelance designer. Additionally, she also worked on a small handmade-goods project.
In 2017, she did not hesitate when presented with the opportunity to leave the chaotic reality of Venezuela to continue growing both personally and professionally. She decided to venture to Buenos Aires, despite not knowing the city. In the beginning, she worked as a cashier and waitress for a few months, always with the belief that any job can help you grow. This changed her life perspective, and she understood how important it is to put oneself in someone else’s shoes. At the same time, she never stopped looking for an opportunity to resume work as a graphic designer. And just as fortune favours the bold, a little later Picnic called her to join the team.
At Picnic, Emma has endless opportunities to try out many different roles, and she takes to every task with optimism and the idea of constantly improving and growing.
She has not yet decided which branch of design she likes most, but where’s the hurry? There is time enough to try them all. Better yet, perhaps it’s not a question of choosing, just enjoying the creating and learning.
