Juliana Castro Varón is a Colombian graphic designer, editor, and open access enthusiast.


She has previously worked at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, the Visual Arts Center in Austin, Texas, NC-arte in Bogotá, and as an editor in digital advertising agencies in Colombia. In 2016, she was awarded the Fulbright Scholarship for the Arts from the Colombian Ministry of Culture and the U.S. Department of State.


Juliana has recently founded Cita, an independent press publishing open-licensed books written by women. Cita provides readers with carefully designed copies of books to be viewed on screen or printed at home, for free. Cita Press is part of her MFA thesis at the University of Texas at Austin, where she is also a Teaching Assistant in Typography and Interaction Design.


When she is not playing with books and type, she spends her spare-time in Austin cooking pizza, listening to podcasts, editing Wikipedia, and co-running Cine Jardin, a backyard feminist film club.


She is open to collaborations, ice cream, pool games, and memes.
