Carole Felmy - Director | Designer

Carole Felmy

Founder, Information designer

Born in France, I graduated as a Telecommunication engineer in 1997. I first worked as a technical consultant in Europe and North America, before making roots in Melbourne. Many life changing events unraveled, from light to abyss. I pondered my direction. This all led me to launching this design practice in 2009.

Illustration and design had always been permeating my personal and professional life, and while my ‘career’ started in the IT industry, the pull towards visual communication was always clear in retrospect. I founded Crealo (meaning ‘create it’ in Spanish) in 2009 first as a web and graphic design business. I then organically shifted towards infographics and presentation design, honing in on my biggest strength: turning complexity into meaningful and purposeful visuals. I am obsessed with flow, simplicity, and making a positive impact.
