I help driven companies build better performing products which are meaningful and beautifully connected to the future of their business.

I'm Cary Da Costa, Canadian brand designer, living in the Dutch lowlands working with local & global brands. I began as a fanatic graphic designer + art director. My career then swiftly moved towards branding and identity design, for print and digital technology.

My trusted approach is multidisciplinary altogether. When developing new brand ideas I tap into my roots of art & printed graphic design. I go for authentic experiences that really matter, nothing middle-of-the-road. I believe in design driven by a purpose and creativity which is custom-fit for any platform.

Demandingly, I help brands stay relevant in a world-gone-digital building solutions people can believe in. In this effort, I am constantly raising the bar— rethinking everything, going for stand-out to maximize winning results, all based on true stories while fearless of change.

Until now, my creative journey has led me here with +15 years of experience working for exciting local & global brands like PHILIPS, UBER, the Walt Disney Company, the City of Rotterdam & The World Health Organization.
