Montserrat Llaurado is a Creative Director with more than 14 years of international experience. Driven by her curiosity and instinct to make ideas happen, she has worked in Austria, Germany, Spain and the US. She is currently based in Palo Alto, California.

Beginning her career in the advertising field, she teamed up with commercial director Pep Bosch, with whom she developed an eye for immaculate art direction, photography and film editing, helping Pep score two of his three Cannes Lion awards. This led her to work on ad campaigns for international brands such as Audi, Volkswagen, Visa and IKEA.

Pursuing her passion for photography and books, she moved to Goettingen, Germany to work for Steidl. Steidl is a renowned publisher of contemporary photography but also art books. All the books are designed and printed in house and she was lucky to witness every stage of the book-making process. Some of the artists she has been honored to work with are Robert Frank, Bruce Davidson, Nan Goldin, Joel Sternfeld, Mitch Epstein, William Eggleston and Juergen Teller, among many others. Steidl also designs and prints for Chanel, Fendi, the Lagerfeld Gallery, Elizabeth Arden and Yohji Yamamoto; it also produces high-class photography books for Thames & Hudson, Scalo, Schirmer & Mosel, and other distinguished galleries and museums worldwide.

More recently, she continued her path to the US and worked as an independent creative consultant and trend forecaster for brands such as Apple, GAP and Wrigley's, being involved in the creative process from concept to completion for numerous ad campaigns and projects.

Lastly, her curiosity and drive for new and exciting challenges, coupled with her passion for photography brought her to Vienna (Austria) to work as Creative Director for Lomography. As Head of Design and reporting to the CEO, she led a team of talented graphic/packaging/product/fashion designers and architects who helped her to develop a creative and innovative vision for new products and brand identity campaigns.

After two years being part of the Lomographic family and proud of her achievements and personal experience, Montserrat is back to the US to continue learning and getting inspired around great challenges on the creative and product design field. Read Less
