Fe Amarante is a Brazilian designer and currently Sr. Creative Director & Head of Brand Design at Danone North America.
Fe has extensive experience in brand building, consumer brands, identity development, and brand world creation, alongside life skills around acting as a diplomat and interpreter between business and creative languages.
In this episode, we discuss why bringing a human approach to the way creative ideas are born, nurtured, and grown is key to achieving great design solutions. She also explains why a lot of times the design logic doesn’t follow the consumer feeling. And she shares with me why she thinks the client-agency model is broken and the potential solutions to fix it.
Fe has crafted and re-imagined identity systems and brand worlds for global iconic brands. She has also helped various organizations find their true authentic expressions, translated to the world through design.
