Maite Albuquerque - Concept & Design


Maite Albuquerque

I was born and raised in Brazil but spread my wings to world making a nest in New York for 5 years and now finding my new home in warm LA. I like to think I'm a curious person who is always ready to make and reimagine things. A forever child that luckily manages to live out of the passion of designing and creating experiences. I've been working as a designer and art director for agencies for more then 10 years and currently I'm part of 72 and Sunny. To make life even more exciting I'm also starting on an adventure of creating my own brand of shoes. Without challenge life would be boring, right?
