My name is Faride I am a Venezuelan award-winning book designer, researcher, & art director based in New York City. 

Having Caribbean and Middle Eastern heritage, and a profound love of books has deeply influenced my work, giving it a hybrid nature. My experience encompasses book design, art direction, research, and teaching. I hold ongoing artistic collaborations in Latin America and Europe. 


Besides teaching, I have worked with companies such as Penguin Random House, Kenning Editions, Cuban Artists Around the World, Ugly Duckling Presse + many more.  I love literature, philosophy, coffee, designer jewelry, and dogs. I was a communications manager at the startup Spline, a visiting scholar at Columbia University in NYC, and currently, I direct my own design studio, Letra Muerta Inc.  in Williamsburg. I am a member of the American Printing History Association (APHA), The Bibliographical Society of America, and Center for Book Arts.
