With 10 years old I was diagnosed with dyslexia, I have reading comprehension problems and I need to create schemes to better understand what I am reading. When I was in high school, I studied by creating masterpieces of infographics, with colours, illustrations and different typographies, all by hand! This is one of the signs that made me work in visual communication.
When I was 18 years old I started studying architecture. My first steps as a graphic designer / illustrator was when communicating my architecture projects. Along those years, I worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for friends and family as a freelancer. After having finished my architecture diploma, I moved to Madrid, where I completed a masters degree in graphic design and began my career.
“The more you are yourself, the more you succeed”. It took me a while to realise the importance of this exercise, know your “super power” is the key. It’s all about being aligned with yourself, your values, beliefs and qualities.
My style is a mix of architecture (my first studies) the Mediterranean (where I grow up) and my enthusiastic personality. I have a playful style, I use bold geometric lines and colourful visuals influenced by my Mediterranean upbringing to shape stories to life. My style is dynamic and alive, it continues to develop with every project and experience.
A tip, know your "super power", keep working and keep getting better.
It’s been 6 months now, since I’m working as a freelancer. Hopefully 2019 is going to be a hard working and profitable year.
"The best way to complain is to make things" this was the sentence in my head when I quit my job. I was tired, I was not motivated with my work, neither the team, and I was always complaining about being someone's employee. I decided to make things, starting by quitting my job and launching my career as a freelancer.
