I’m Juliana Castro Varón, a Colombian graphic designer, editor, and playfulness enthusiast based in Austin. I have more than 4 years of experience working as a designer and digital content creator for cultural institutions and advertising agencies. In 2017, I founded Cita, an independent press publishing open-licensed books written by women.


I believe all design can be interactive and interaction is not necessarily digital. I am interested in using design and storytelling as tools to help people engage with experiences, brands or institutions. I have previously worked in museums such as the Guggenheim in NYC and NC-arte in Bogotá. In 2016, I received a Fulbright Scholarship from the Colombian Ministry of Culture and the US Department of State. When I’m not designing covers, playful websites, campaigns, videos, or illustrations, I spend my spare time cooking pizza, listening to podcasts and creating playlists. I’m currently finishing my MFA at the University of Texas at Austin and will be available for full and part-time opportunities starting May 2018. Please feel free to contact me for a full resume or for any other inquiry, including memes.

Services: book, web, videoediting, animation, branding, illustration, identity systems, social media, project management, digital marketing. Native in Spanish, Fluent in English, Italian.
