Elisa Schonwald

Creative Director

Bogotá, Colombia
Since I was little I knew I was a creative person. The legacy of my family which includes artists, designers and photographers, is one of the reasons for the deep passion of my work, the high standards of responsibility and the commitment I assume with everything I do. I have always said that quality and love are the most important elements in each thing my mind and hands create.

I consider myself a good team player, always trying to create an ambience where challenge and motivation work together.

My last name is Schonwald, which in German means beautiful forest. I nourish the trees that grow in there with art, literature, colors and textures.

Art is essential in my life and I want to keep building the bridge between this world and my work as a designer. As a curator, as a writer, as a creative director, as a communication strategy manager, as a person who values the expression itself and the past of the human kind, transforming it into the present.
