La Descarada (shameless woman) is a line of 100% Mexican salsa. “La Coqueta” (Coquette) is the first of the series; containing lime, Chile Japonés and Cebolla.
A cold neutral palette will remain consistent throughout the line of products, meanwhile accents will play as flavor differentiator.
Special iconography was developed for this project featuring crafted illustrations that storytell a love story with the salsa’s ingredients:
Women in Mexico are seductive, radiant, dangerous, addictive, and undeniably spicy. This salsa is quite the same.
Don't Mess With Texas Women
Artwork by Daniela Valle, for miss Alicia Downard that marched for all of us at the Women's March on Washington on January 21st, 2017.
We've decided to release the copyright on the artwork and start our own crowdfunding campaign with all proceeds going towards a Texas women's rights non-profit.
Over 1000 dlls were raised for non-profit organizations such as SAFE Alliance, Casa Marianela, and Planned Parenthood; in Texas.
"If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman" - Margaret Thatcher
"Que bien te ves. Esta podría ser tu nueva camisa favorita." (You look so good. This could be your new favorite shirt)
The brand language created for Sr Pacheco was inspired by the minimal simplicity that exists beneath the modern-hip men. Urban doesn't mean dirty, overcomplicated or dark. Sr Pacheco plays the other side of the obvious, a clean sophisticated urban sleek shirt. Sold at local barbershops in Monterrey, MX.
Art of the Brew Pocket Program
Art of the Brew: The crossroads of contemporary art, craft beer, music, and food.
A beer festival that takes place in the heart of Texas. This one-day event demonstrates the connections and influences these creative communities have on one another and encourages greater collaboration between them.
For their 5th edition, this pocket booklet was designed for users to hold their program with just one hand, so that they hold their beer with the other hand.
A very crafty, technical, yet doodley style was used to commemorate precision, detail, and attention to the process — of these breweries and the arts. Resembling the human touch of crafting.
Pro-bono work for Persist PAC organization.
#Persist PAC is unaffiliated with any political party. At the forefront of our agenda is a movement toward a more representative government, with emphasis on removal of gerrymandered districts and support of elected officials who work on behalf of their constituents, rather than pandering to big lobbies or big business.
Our organization supports the average American who believes that "Liberty and Justice for All" has no footnote, and who demand their representatives work to leave a cleaner, safer, healthier, better educated, more efficient and more inclusive future for our nation's children.
From Lasagna to Breakfast tacos, Mauma is an expert in the everyday comfort food featuring the best ingredients and flavor.
The mural was created with the same intention; the game of ingredients and the creativity of cuisine in our daily life. The vibrant colors match their communal area where often people stay for a bite, or just grab takeout.
Mauma is located in San Pedro Garza Garcia close to Monterrey, Mexico.
A curated collection of objects, furniture, and wares characterizing the interdisciplinary practices of Central Texas artists, designers, and makers.

-We provide to our customers the maximum freshness and flavor by bottling milk in glass.-
The Milkman’s brand design was truly inspired by the first milkmen; those committed to deliver glass-bottled freshly brewed milk, block by block all morning long. Black and white colors give the product a serious flashback, recreating the photography that back then was possible. Red instead achieves an excessive vibrancy by providing life and color to a humble healthy beverage.
Fluidity and Mexican forms are clearly achieved in the product’s label; representing an almond, its pedestal and an amazing milk explosion
Design presented at AIGA's 2016 Command X
Sometimes less is more. And in this case, this is what Gamblers Anonymous is striving for; to be a classic yet bold fellowship that could easily be recognised. Helvetica Condensed was used to achieve a clean and bold look, this font was created in 1957, and so GA was established the same year, this was classic was paired with classic.
Ravens mean endings and beginnings, and for GA its all about starting and ending, ravens also mean healing and cleansing, not only that but they are a part of Vegas' wildlife. Last but not least, the 12 step recovery program was built into this 12 deck of cards, a step at a time a card at a time. A progress that could definitely be tied with the brand to be memorable and remembered as a fast easy-way-out of an addiction.
Sector: Indoor Climbing Club
BRAND DEVELOPMENT for Indoor Climbing Gym. Development by Daniela Valle @SHIFT. All rights reserved.
SECTOR identity reflects values that stay true to a climbing gym: urbanism, premium quality, creativity, and community. All, with a modern touch.
Two strong influences were considered as inspiration: Frat-Club and Topographic drawings. When combining these a strong balance was accomplished between –the urban– and –the modern– representing the “club” value of the brand.
Why N -grama ? ' N ' represents Nutrition and ' Grama ' means written or graphic. This simple and straightforward.

The pleasure of living at the proximity of death.
The "Catrina", naughty and flirty invites us to make our experience something pleasurable, as if it was our last. It's her who through cultural arts reminds us how to find the meaning of life. Only she knows how to appear herself to remind us that life is one; here, now and forever.
This skeleton carries both style and color as part of our Mexican celebration, recognized for its tribute to all those who went ahead on the road. The Mexican is the only one who truly manages to think of death as a better life, a festival of death; our ritual.
“La Huesuda” is part of our heritage and identity, always radiant, elegant and with a smile that transcends into a cultural icon.
Skool is a wooden stool that was created to imitate through its shape and colors: the Mexican Calavera, using traditional and artisanal techniques to represent its graphic details. Skool is intended to be presented as an iconic piece of furniture, a creative opportunity to represent Mexican culture in any space.
The product was created by the do it yourself philosophy, to facilitate the production and transportation of this product. Skool is composed of 4 components for personal assemble and disassemble.
The evolution of beauty, happened.
As a matter of fact, many ladies made it through history, but just a few of them made it through society, media and critics. Transcendence was a success not only because of their physical attributes, but because of their courage; daring more and more women to stand up and detonate lessons from the core of their souls to plenty of other hearts.
Hepburn taught us what the real purpose of our body was. Kahlo howled in her drawings her capacity and strength to move on, ignoring the pain of love, flying beneath paint, and fighting her insides. Monroe made culture notice her curves, showing off perfectly a size 12; making bulky a beautiful word. Twiggy instead, dreaming of a body like Monroe, had the slim figure that later on turned into fashion desire, becoming the “it girl”. Mother Teresa was not that involved in the media; instead she used her body and soul to feed those who were thirsty of love. Naturally, these are the women who knew how to change the world. With or without their bodies, we remain speechless.
The Ladies is an art collection that reunites all women’s natural beauty transformed into coloured strokes.
Exposition taken place @Via Cordillera, Monterrey, MX.
