ABOUT ME

Born in 1985 in the sunny coast of Galicia and currently living in Germany, where I work as an apparel and footwear graphic designer for Adidas Originals.

 

I am a multidisciplinary graphic designer and illustrator with a wide range of skills and experience in the different fields of Design. Creative and analytical thinking, an eye for detail, passion for my job, versatility to adapt to any kind of projects and a strong educational and professional background are just some of my qualities.

My specialties are: editorial design, type design and lettering, brand design and, on the illustration side, I'm usually working with subjects around nature and portraits.

 

I like to explore and learn new styles, techniques, materials and me and my work keep on continually evolving, so... I would just say that everything is always "work in progress".
