New York-based design studio Hush has added design director Claudia Chagüi to its team. She brings with her a varied background in commercials, interactive installations, retail and events.
A native Colombian, Chagüi’s career has taken her from Central and South America to Kansas City, where she served as the creative director at Hint, the experiential/design division of T2. There she wrote, designed, pitched and led projects for brands such as TEDx, Sprint, McDonalds, Dell and Crayola, among others. She later helped expand Hush, starting with offices in Chicago and eventually New York.
Her work has won many awards, including Gold and Silver national ADDY awards.
“Claudia’s energy and enthusiasm for artistry and design is palpable. She’s a natural talent who has the foundation of traditional artistic pursuits, but has expanded her own practice to communicate how the craft of design can drive brands forward,” says David Schwarz, Hush creative partner. “Within a few minutes of meeting her, we knew we were very much aligned.”
