Andrea Malanski

I am a Sweden-based designer focused in visual communication and narrative environments. I am interested in projects that allow me to combine my passions and skills: design and storytelling, analog and digital experiences, 2D and 3D environments, aesthetics and user experience.

I love the diversity of content and media in my design practice. Right now I am working on a mixed reality experience that includes VR, 3D printing and storytelling about an Egyptian mummy; on a gift packaging system for a cosmetic brand; on illustrated maps of neighborhoods of a big city in Brazil; and on digital strategy and content for social media for a lingerie brand.
Since 2015, I run my own design company. I have been working with multidisciplinary creative teams located in different countries for international clients. I develop projects in graphic design, retail design, experience design and exhibition design, with a strong focus on strategy and user experience. In some of these projects, in addition to the design role, I coordinate multidisciplinary teams. Prior experiences include many years as partner and creative direction in DMSBOX, a Brazilian design company where I developed projects for clients such as Renault, Volvo and Electrolux, among other big companies in Brazil.
