Darinka_Aguirre“For the average person, understanding the way science works might be a difficult task. That’s when design comes in: design helps translate the overwhelming into an exciting journey.”

Darinka is a graphic designer with a master’s degree in sustainable design from Emily Carr University of Art and Design. She holds a bachelor’s degree in industrial design and has recently completed a publishing diploma at Langara College. Two of her passions are teaching sustainable graphic design and working on projects that benefit the community through design.

A book is all it took for Darinka to become obsessed with science. From an early age she devoured encyclopedias on biology, geography and natural history. Paleontology and evolution are her favourite science discussion topics.

Darinka describes herself as the balance of a left-brained and right-brained individual. On one hand, she loves the objectiveness in science and technology. On the other hand, she delights in the boundless freedom of art and design.

In her spare time Darinka can be found gardening, hiking, or drinking chai lattes while enjoying her favourite design magazines.
