I’m Blanca Navarro – an art director and interactive designer living in sunny, Southern California. I specialize in many fields including web design, ecommerce design, editorial design and product shoots and styling. Simply put, I love designing, creating and collaborating. From early conception to final execution, I like to tell stories and see how people engage with those stories. My core values include creativity, honesty and hard work.
Currently, I’m an in-house interactive designer for Vans. Previously I’ve worked and partnered with Disney, Avery Products, Screen Actors Guild (SAG), Bomber Eyewear, Mercy House, Vizio TV and The New York Times.
Away from my desk, I enjoy listening to far too many podcasts, attending concerts, traveling and fine vegan dining.
