Larissa's design experience in print stems from her earlier working career career in journalism (BJourn, BAMedia Studies, BMMedia). A get-your-hands-dirty background with print, radio and old school internet is the first and best way to understand the roots of visual design in these vastly different arenas. Nothing smudges like ink.

Sixteen solid years of internet experience in design, development and project management has left her trilingual in Developer, Middle Management and Client.
