I solve problems through design.
Hi! My name is Karina Davila, and I'm a graphic designer and social impact designer located in New York City. I've had the opportunity to art direct, manage and collaborate on several strategic marketing campaigns at various organizations including Walt Disney World, Valencia College and the 92nd Street Y. Although I've specialized in print design throughout my career, I realized that I wanted to do more than make something look pretty. I wanted to create a deeper impact through design.
Recently, I graduated from the School of Visual Arts earning a Master of Fine Arts in Design for Social Innovation. As a graduate student, I learned to work within multidisciplinary teams on human-centered design projects that explored using design as a tool for social good. We used skills such as design research, communication strategy and user experience design to come up with solutions that addressed issues such as food waste, child abuse and sea level rise. As a graduate, I'm interested in working within human centered design and systems thinking to address human need and complex social issues. If you would like to check out my resume, click below.
