It all started when I was 6 years old at a birthday party when I saw the waterfall of toys that fell from a smashed piñata. I instantly knew I had to grab as many toys as I could. Months later, realizing I still had them, I began to package and label these toys, creating my very first brand “La Manualmentica“ or the craft-maker in english.
That was it for me and also for my poor parents’ wallet because I started selling toys from my bedroom window.
Hola! I'm Paola. I'm Peruvian, and I'm a sucker for good design in the form of candy wrappers, stickers, shopping bags, etc. I'm the type of person who ends up buying things just so that I can keep their packaging!
When I'm not immersed in advertising and colors, you can find me geeking out on science videos at 3 am. My favorite topic? Time and Space.
What if I am not found there? I am probably traveling, learning some other language or getting lost in a new city.
Although I left the piñata business days back in the sandbox, I still move forward with the same hustle, creativity and curiosity :)
