SUMMARY

Carla Saliba has over 17 years of experience in design related disciplines, including 9 years as a trained architect. However, it wasn’t until completion of a Master's degree in Business Design that she discovered her passion for infographics.

 

In 2014, she founded Infographic.ly in Dubai, the first information design & data visualization agency in the Middle East that focuses on helping companies communicate data to stakeholders clearly and effectively. Clients have included MasterCard, TED, Reebok, and WIRED, with designs being featured in publications around the world.  

 

Carla is also a guest writer for Entrepreneur Middle East, writing thought leadership articles on good design principles for businesses. She is regularly invited to speak at international conferences and has trained governmental agencies in Dubai on building their information design capabilities in-house. Furthermore, she is about to start a second Master’s degree in Business Analytics & Big Data at IE University that will add onto her knowledge and expertise to further expand her business and to satisfy part of the huge unmet demand for data scientists in the Middle East.

 

When she’s not designing data for clients, Carla sits on the board of Omneyat, a Bahrain based charity promoting evidence-based practice in the treatment of autism and developmental delays. Additionally, she is a Responsible Leader Alumni for the BMW Foundation.
