Dimitra Makri
Community Manager

 
Dimitra holds a BA in Applied Mathematics and a Master's degree in Neuroscience. She worked as a research assistant in various international institutes and is still an enthusiast for science and new technologies. Joining the Lazy Snail team as a copywriter and social media manager might sound like straying way off-course at first. Truth is, that her double life finally caught up with her.. Being a bookworm, and moonlighting as a writer here and there on art blogs and online magazines was always more of a passion than anything else. She never thought it would actually become a real job. But then again that's the best kind of jobs, isn't it? :)

Carolina Salassa
Art Director


Carolina holds a bachelor and master's degree in Architecture from the Polytecnico di Torino.
Finishing her studies, she decided to further explore her interest in graphic design and packaging.

She has worked as a packaging designer for creative agencies and has acquired professional experience both in Italy and Denmark. She left Copenhagen for Crete and literally pedalled her way to the south, in search of sunnier skies.
Being herself a tree hugger and outdoors lover, she naturally fit to Lazy snail’s microclimate- and to its Copenhagen/Crete split personality.
