Creatives to Watch in ’22: Caro Diaz
CREATIVES TO WATCH IN ’22” CARO DIAZ
This is what pure joy looks like.
The jump for joy in this photo also represents the leaps of faith our friend, graphic designer Carolina (Caro) Diaz has taken along the way — the faith she’s had in herself and her own creative abilities – along the way to finally establishing a home for her screen printing business, @InkaPrint.
She’s run her business out of her home for years. But, to start 2022, she took a leap of faith and signed a lease at Gibson Mill. She leapt into the New Year with both feet, knowing … at any time … she could fall. But, she leapt anyway.
LEAPING INTO PASSION & PURPOSE
Caro has fallen a time or two, as anyone does. But, she’s always gotten back up and leapt again. She’s leapt again and again, learning every time and sharing what she’s learned with the creatives around her and climbing ever higher as she goes.
HUGGING CREATIVES BACK
It’s kind of funny that we’re naming Caro a “Creative to Watch in ’22.” That implies that we’re just now meeting her. In fact, we met her years ago when we awarded her a $250 HUG Grant for @CLTenEspanol, a media channel about Latino creatives she helped found. Now, she even helps select HUG Grantees each month. We’re proud to be on HER team.
We’ve been watching Caro for years. In her, we see someone who inspires us, pushes us and makes us want to take our own leaps – to fully embrace what Charlotte’s creative community has to offer.
So watch Caro with us. 2022 is her year.
