A lover of murals, stationary stores & carrot cake.


Hello, My name is Yaritza, but I often go by Yari. Feel free to call me either.  I am a graphic designer, currently living in Los Angeles, Ca. ,but grew up in the Bay Area 🌉. 

On my off days, I love me a cold Matcha Latte with a warm pastry, while I shop for books and pens. If not, I will most likely be indoors searching for some hidden gems on netflix like “Old Boy”, “Amélie”, or “What happend to Monday”, there is nothing like a good story to wonder your mind. 

I’m a multidisciplinary creative, who is passionate about research and representation towards margenalized communities.  I am passionate in producing fun and easy to digest medium of information and culture that can be accessable to all.  Specializing in Typography and visual identities, I create a wide range of work for clients both large and small. Thank you for looking, and have a pleasant time.
