Chiara Mensa

A graphic designer and visual communicator taking a stand for nature, biodiversity and climate action

An architect by training, I pivoted to design shortly after graduation. Since then I’ve been refining my skillset and workflow within several design agencies across Australia and the UK. Somewhere along the way, I realized the potential of design to break down complex ideas and engage people through visual storytelling, ultimately changing minds and behaviours for the better. Given the current ‘climate’—pun very much intended— I decided to fully commit to exploring this potential by founding HYPHAE, an independent design consultancy aimed at redirecting my creative efforts towards advancing scientific research, conservation efforts, and sustainable initiatives.
