Carla Saliba has over 16 years of experience in design related disciplines, including 9 years as a trained architect. However, it wasn’t until her 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 Mercedes-Benz, with designs being featured in publications around the world.
Carla 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 Data Science 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 is Creative Director for Classport, a fitness app in the Middle East. She also sits on the board of Think Inc Foundation, a charity that supports families of children with autism in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Additionally, she is a Responsible Leader Alumni for the BMW Foundation.
