SESSIONS COLLEGE OF PROFESSIONAL DESIGN
Mariela Abreu is a graphic designer at BIC Graphic in Clearwater FL. Born in Cuba, Mariela is a Caribbean at heart with a love for traveling and the arts. A Liberal Arts graduate from Havana University, Mariela worked as a scriptwriter in Spanish until she came to America, where she found her true passion in graphic design. In the last 15 years she has worked for a wide variety of companies, ranging from printers to design studios, where she learned about branding and advertising. For her, the beauty of graphic design is that it combines colors, figures, typefaces and intangible ideas in the designer’s mind to create physical pieces that can really touch people’s lives and affect their way of thinking. Mariela went back to school to earn her Associate Degree in Graphic Design at Sessions College, an experience that she says enriched her knowledge and upgraded her capabilities. Outside of her work, Mariela can frequently be found collaborating with freelance designers on digital projects or at outdoors activities with her family.
