Renata Kuba is a designer, researcher, and lover of experience design. She began her professional career in São Paulo, working with various cool companies. In 2009, she founded Kuba Design, a digital agency, where she has since developed wide-ranging designs for agencies, e-learning, and editorial brands. In 2014, she moved to New York to pursue a Master’s in Interactive Media at NYU, and now she is working toward her Ph.D. in Learning Technologies at FSU.

Whether in the digital realm or print scale, she combines innovation and creativity to build engaging experiences, and her work is exceptionally diverse, ranging from branding to instructional products. When she is not creating artistic things for her clients, she likes to write about her experiences in her blog and share some creative arts on her Instagram.

— “I feel that my career is deep-rooted within me because I do nothing without a touch of creativity. Design is more than my profession; it is my main hobby!”
