Hi, I'm Karla!
I’m the Design Director at Constructive. I lead our design practice with a strategic, human-centered approach and extensive training in design for social innovation to create inclusive, responsive brand experiences.
Q: What's one thing you won't learn from my bio?
I'm from the Dominican Republic, which means I'm fluent in Spanish. You can frequently find me beach-hopping with my dog Velcro.
