About Me


Manolia D'Souza

Graphic Designer

Hello, I’m Manolia D’Souza, a Graphic Designer living and working out of Dubai, UAE.

I dabble with print and digital mediums to create design work that pays close attention to creative thinking, detail, typography, composition and overall communication. I am a graduate from the American University in Dubai, with a BFA in Visual Communication (double major in Creative Advertising and Graphic Design).

I love branding, typography, mixed media and photography. As a designer, I am passionate about producing great work and improving my skill set as the years go by. When I’m not designing, you’ll find me baking and decorating cupcakes, taking photos, snapchatting, instagramming and stuffing my face with popcorn.

Currently seeking a full time position.

I am also available for freelance projects
