Portrait picture in black and white of designer Laís Kantor

Hi, I’m Laís Kantor

My professional journey is about leaving my comfort zone thought challenges, languages, skills & culture.

I was born in the end of 80’s in the 12 million people city of São Paulo. There I had experiences in anything from a Cinema Festival to an historic Ad- vertising Agency called Talent. From there, while at Digital Design University, I moved to Madrid where I continued to work as an Art Director in worldwide agencies. While there, I received a scholarship to do a Master in Creative Advertising.

After a few years of movida madrileña I decide to come to Milan, where I’ve been living since 2013. During my work in Advertising I was able to work for big brands like Burger King, Ferrari, Microsoft, Lavaz- za and others. But during those years I started reali- sing that an important part of Design was missing: placing people at the center of projects.

Therefore I changed my path towards consultancy and later to product. In the meantime started to teach at Istituto Europeo di Design at the Master of Creative Direction. Due to my passion for Education, in 2018 I also achieved my degree in Pedagogy.

I’ve learnt and grew a lot through my more than 10 years of professional experience. I hope to continue on this route in the future.
