Approach, methodology and work process

The deconstruction of the problem and the challenge of the drawing program are part of a methodology that is appropriate and specific to each project. Throughout the process, critical sense and plurality is decisive not only for the dismantling of the existing models, but also to try and test new solutions.

I develop projects such as visual identities, editorial design, signage systems, products, equipments as well as web design projects.
As a consequence of my multidisciplinary, I celebrate partnerships with other project areas such as engineering, photography, video, programming or architecture.
