Graduate Carla Valdivia Explores Colour


A recent graphic design graduate from the prestigious Central St Martins College, London, Carla Valdivia’s practice is concerned with colour and our reactions to vibrant hues.

Her recent thesis discussed colour non-theory, proposing an instinctual school of thought for the use of colour that breaks away from theorised norms. Addressing colour as a learning tool, she has worked with geometric patterns to produce colour tools for children, encouraging them to understand space and proportion through play.

As well as producing experimental work, Valdivia has also designed textile patterns and printed graphics, working with American fashion store Opening Ceremony and Vice magazine.
