Lucia Orlandi is a multi-disciplinary Creative Director & Designer.

Working at the intersection of design and technology, she’s spent the past 14+ years at some of the world’s most awarded agencies, working with celebrated brands within tech, consumer, beauty, and fashion industries.

A true hybrid, the work she is most passionate about is strong in strategic insight and adaptive in form. Be that, building a brand from the ground up, uncovering a strategic insight that changes a product offering for the better, or defining a campaign that seamlessly breaks through in culture.

Originally from Ireland and presently in Los Angeles, her career has taken her from Dublin, Toronto, NYC, San Francisco, and back to NYC again.

Currently, Lucia is Creative Director, at Squarespace in LA, where she leads all things brand design. Previously, she was Director, Head of Design at I&CO, where she ran the creative department focusing new products and brands that create impact, for clients such as Audible and Theory. Prior to that, Lucia was a Creative Director at R/GA in New York, leading work for Mailchimp, LEGO, Google and ESPN.

Lucia stays committed to her craft by contributing to 100 Archive - documenting the future of Irish Design, in addition defining visual systems for  Ladies Get Paid and Where Are the Boss Ladies, movements that advocate for women’s value in the workplace. In 2017 she was named a One Club and 3% Movement Next Creative Leader, and she was named one of The Dots’ 200 Women Redefining the Creative Industry in 2018.

Her work has been recognized through top industry awards (Cannes Lions, D&AD, etc) and featured in publications such as Time Magazine, The New York Times, Creativity, AdAge, It’s Nice That, and The Association of Illustrators.
