My name is Nadia Mendez (a.k.a. la chinaM). I’m a type & graphic designer, sometimes I do illustrations and I love it. I was born in Mexico city, graduated from Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana, with master studies in Typographic Design from Centro de Estudios Gestalt, Mexico. I was founding member of Círculo de Tipógrafos (Typographic Circle) in Mexico city. After working for different design agencies in Mexico city in 2013 I migrated to UAE, where I started to work for T Emirates: The New York Times Style Magazine; now I’m working for Bloomberg Businessweek Middle East magazine based in Dubai.
