About

Born in Madrid, I am a 21 year old 1st class graphic design graduate from the University of Lincoln in the United Kingdom. Currently doing a masters in Visual Design at Elisava, in Barcelona.

I have always had a great interest in any kind of creatively visualising and expressing ideas in ways such as design and photography.

Three years ago I moved to England with nothing but a suitcase full of jumpers (the hardest change from the 35 degree weather in Madrid) to pursue the idea of being a visual artist as well as a creative who could express ideas and solve problems through creative thinking. Currently completing a Masters degree in Barcelona in order to push my creativer limits and explore new ways of thinking and creating. 

As a designer and creative thinker I always try to carefully consider my design decisions - by understanding the problem and the solution needed — so that they are adequate to the brief, introducing a fresh point of view, being critical and objective with my work. I’m an ambitious individual who always seeks answering the why decisions have been taken the way they’ve been taken.
