Lu Hickman Creative

About Us


Creative Director

Luciana Hickman is an award-winning designer from São Paulo, Brazil, whose unique design aesthetic was molded by the renowned Escola Panamericana de Arte e Design. Due to the rigorous curriculum and access to creative mentors such as Washington Olivetto, Hector Babenco and Marcello Serpa, she experienced hands-on, results-oriented processes that helped her hone her skills in design thinking and leadership.

When Lu moved to the United States she continued to develop her skills at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago, the city in which she opened her design studio and leads a team of multidisciplinary creatives. Because of Lu’s “ginga,” which is Portuguese for “adaptability,” the team has cultivated a creative spirit, a strong sense of empathy, and a vibrant “can-do” attitude.

Throughout her career Lu has created designs for some of the most prestigious brands in the world, including: McDonald’s, Hewlett Packard, Golden Arches, Carrefour, C&A, Romero Britto, and LVMH.
