Fugazzi Face. Graphic Art. 2020, Madrid.
It was a provoked accident: I took a picture of an ID photo with my phone, then opened it in Photoshop. I took it so close to the screen though, that the result was beautifully blurry. Many Photo ID’s of colleagues, friends and family followed from there. There is a whole IG account dedicated to it.

Minimal landscapes. Graphic Art. 2016, Berlin.
Landscapes viewed from a distance always trigger the imagination to wonder what is going on over there. This was the idea behind this series of drawings where minimal elements articulate in different ways.

Toshio. Type design. 2019, Madrid.
This typeface was initially executed with Tinka Font, and App to make fonts out of drawings or photos you take with the camera. In this case I took pictures of Helvetica regular which came out in way more interesting shapes than the original. Available to download for free here (no commercial use).
Yoga is 24 Hours. Brand identity. 2022, Madrid.
Yoga is an attitude, a way to understand yourself and what is around you all day, not only when you practice the postures (asanas). I helped spreading this message with this merchandising made for Mysore House Madrid. All the revenue goes to the courageous charity Humanity Crew.
Vanta. Brand identity. 2019, Madrid.
I made this identity for Vanta, a creative coder based in Berlin. Two ideas got in the way to create this symbol: the refraction of light and the punched cards from early computers.

Do not. Graphics. 2016, Berlin.
While living in Berlin, my command of the German language was not as good as to say with words “please stop slamming the door”. So I decided to create this graphic for the inconsiderate neighbour we had who did this as part of his annoying rutine. Thank God, visual language can be universal.
Drei Poster. Number. 2022, Madrid.
I draw this humongous and brutalist number inspired by this incredible print made by House Industries. Now you can order mine too by email.
