Graphic Design Teacher
Natalia Zuluaga is originally from Colombia, where she studied graphic design and worked at various design agencies before moving to London in 2012 to study a Masters in Branding. Until recently she was leading a creative team at a top strategic communications agency in London where she focused on managing the team and consulting in branding, digital design and content production. She is the odd designer who loves the business of design and the design of businesses.
