Brief Summary
I am Carla Traini, Communication Designer passioned for Design Strategy/Branding, Packaging Design, Corporate & Editorial Design for luxury as well as consumer goods.

I love my job. I like how it constantly puts me in brand new challenges that I face every day with energy, curiosity and enthusiasm.

I believe in teamworking. I’m a concrete person with a high sense of duty and respect for colleagues and clients and most of all for the projects.

I like to share ideas and solutions with colleagues. I appreciate other people’s views but nonetheless I’m ready to stand up for what I think is a good idea.

I fight for what I believe in. I’m determined and ambitious. I work hard to get the goals I want, with a positive mind and trust in the future.

Ideas move me: no matter if I work for luxury or consumer goods, a book or a pack, methods and brilliant ideas make the difference.
