About me

Hello, I'm Clara de Melo, a recent graduate with a degree in Architecture from the Federal University of Paraíba (UFPB) in João Pessoa, Brazil.

Currently, I’m eager to apply the insights gained from my undergraduate studies, bringing my unique perspective as a young South American woman into play. I’m committed to learning quickly and delivering excellent results.

Outside of work, I immerse myself in diverse aspects of visual arts. Whether it’s experimenting with 2D animations to express myself non-verbally, working on graphic design projects, or indulging in amateur photography, I’m constantly exploring. Through these projects, I sharpen my grasp of formal and chromatic balance while honing my skills in artistic conception, often using image editing software.
