Freelance graphic designer and art director based in Barcelona.

Working for studios and as a freelance on a variety of projects and sectors since 2008.

I was born in Sant Pere de Ribes, a small town near Barcelona. As I grew up I developed an obsession about drawing everything around.

Years later, I decided to go to the university to study fine arts, but I found out it wasn’t my thing. After considering many other options, I ended up studying graphic design in Elisava. A month later I realized this was exactly what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. During my third course I got accepted as an exchange student in Central Saint Martins, packed all my stuff and moved to London. Since then I come back once a year.

After finishing my career I traveled to Amsterdam. It was such a great experience to bike and be surrounded by beautiful typefaces that I decided to stay. I spent two years working as a freelance designer and illustrator while doing my own side projects.

Missing my hometown’s nice weather, I came back to Barcelona and started working as an editorial designer for healthcare industry with nice folks at Bcnscience. For three years, I had the opportunity to participate on great projects, most of them being iPad editorial apps and interactive projects. I studied User experience, HCI and HTML5/CSS3, which helped me design better interactive experiences.

I currently work as a freelance designer and teach at Bau, a Barcelona Design University.

Social

I’m on Twitter to connect with designers and clients. I use it mostly to share resources, other designer’s work or my student’s. And to throw my thoughts on infographics, editorial and UX. Sometimes I post my own projects too. You can follow me here.

You will also find me on Behance, Pinterest and Linkedin.

I’m based in Barcelona and work for clients around the world.
