Hello! I’m Clarissa Ines, from Manila, Philippines.
I am a graphic designer, a coffee addict, and a tennis fanatic. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications, then worked as an art director in advertising for five years. I’m no longer based in an office, but my work still involves a lot of design, a lot of time, and a lot of coffee.
In early 2012, I started this solo endeavor (then named Pixel + Ink) as a wedding invitation designer and calligrapher, while taking on various design work on the side to build my portfolio. Since then, I’ve shifted my focus from weddings to design, lettering, and illustration for books and publications.
I love traveling, toys, taking pictures, and taking pictures of toys traveling. I also really love cats.
I’ve had the pleasure of doing work for World Health Organization – Western Pacific Region, International Labour Organization Philippines, Anvil Publishing, Smile Magazine for Cebu Pacific, Candy Magazine, Yummy Magazine, Miladay Jewels, Singapore Diagnostics, Classic Confections, Aria Cucina Italiana, and Camp Explore.
