Ligia E. Hubert
Founder & Creative Director
is a graphic designer originally from Guatemala, where she grew up surrounded by the exotic beauty of the country and the rush of a busy city.
In 2000, at 24 years old, she founded her first graphic design studio, méndezdiseña, where she directed an incredible team until 2013, when she moved to Buffalo, NY.
In 2016, ligiahubert became her second entrepreneurial endeavor. What started as a one-person studio turned into a collaboration with a selected group of highly talented professionals in the creative field working under her lead.
Ligia has deep roots in the Hispanic culture and loves to be involved in projects and initiatives that support education, children, and art. She also serves as a professor teaching Graphic Design at Bryant & Stratton and Daemen colleges in WNY.
Most recently, she became a mentor for participants of the M&T Bank Minority and Women Emerging Entrepreneurs Program of the Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership of the University at Buffalo.
Life surprised her with a radical change when she said goodbye to her home and family in Guatemala. It also gave her new opportunities to continue growing as a human, a woman, and a creative mind. She uses this experience to enrich her work and the way she approaches each project for her clients.
As the Creative Director of ligiahubert, Ligia has always believed in collaboration, teamwork, and the incubation of talent. She has had the privilege to work with professionals that had become part of a remote team that comes together to complement each other with their talents.
By 2021, ligiahubert also opened a new opportunity to accept graduate students to become part of the team as interns.

Universidad La Salle, Ciudad de México
is currently studying her final year of university at Universidad La Salle in Mexico City. During her third year of Graphic and Digital Design studies, she lived in Buffalo, NY, where she attended Daemen College as an exchange student.
For her, graphic design is a way of communication that involves much more than just text and images. It is a personal approach to the audience seeing, reading, or interacting with the design. She loves to travel to feed her creativity and practice her languages. She also loves to collect her traveling memories and design inspirations into travel vlogs.
To continue her career, she is looking to study an MFA in Branding, Advertising, or Photography after graduating. She is currently looking for opportunities in the United States and Europe. You can also find her making plans for her next trip, scrapbooking, reading, or crafting.
