Renata Watson

Renata is a graphic designer, photographer, and art director originally from Boston, MA. She earned her BFA in design with a double minor in photography and brand marketing, graduating Magna Cum Laude on a full-tuition merit scholarship from Lesley University College of Art and Design.


Renata’s background is extensive, including studio, in-house, and freelance work. She values clean design, creating and expanding upon brand systems, showcasing her photography, and dabbling with illustration. 


Her work has taken her nationally, and she has collaborated with critically acclaimed photographers, such as Annie Leibovitz.

When off the clock, you can find Renata in a dance class and picking up a well-deserved boba tea.

I’m a firm believer that design can be used as a universal language, a platform for inclusivity, and a place to experiment. I have extensive experience working in a studio, in-house, and freelancing. I love working collaboratively with others and have a niche understanding of coffee communities!

Fun fact: I'm a certified welder!
