HEY BOSS, NICE TO MEET YOU!
I’m Gaia “flamingaia” Armellin. Through holistic design & self-improvement hacks, I help Social Enterprises design an impactful service & sustainable business without hiring a full-time consultancy team. My mission is supporting them in making the change they want to see in their community – and beyond.
I started as creative (art director, concepts and digital) and strategist for international advertising agencies around the globe. Because of the nature of my own process, I quickly moved towards UX and service design, business development and mentoring.
Although my client portfolio includes a variety of industries from this hybrid background (beauty, consumer products, oil & gas, food & beverage, automotive, fitness, education, non-profits, …), I chose the social sector because social change is my passion and my core.
Every problem has a solution. My job is to dig deeper into the issues causing the problem (symptoms), and to find and work on its roots. Hence, I request full transparency and clarity between my clients and me throughout our relationship. I am extremely fond on feedback, so please feel free to let me know your thoughts in all frankness and respect.
Let’s leave sugar-coating in the bakery, okay? : )
My work should bring you higher value than what it costs; and when your work brings higher value to the society and the world around you, I will be happy to support you through the “1 Year For Good” Pro-Bono Program.
“When you invest on others, you invest on yourself”
You are important to me. When we are working together, you are my priority. Therefore, I will be happy to accommodate your professional requests, and I am extremely considerate of your timing and budget. Is any of them tight? Let’s discuss a feasible solution within the timeframe, keeping in consideration your “Unique & Flexible Payment Option” too. I have been working since 2012 and I have built satisfying relationship with clients and collaborators because they know I am on their side.
