Madrid, Spain
I am a creative designer whose purpose is to combine my experience as a designer with my knowledge of History and Art.
I am a reliable designer with strong in-house editorial experience, where I have carried out both creative and coordination works. I have worked on projects from initial brief (making budgets, designing the start line and choosing the team work) to deliver the final work. I am used to work under pressure and to sort work so that projects arrive on time.

I have got a high creative profile with a global vision. I think Designer must be the person in charge of visual identity of all items of a project, regardless surface where they may be run. The creation of attractive visual experiences must go joined to empathetic exercise toward user.

Design is a very important subject because it consists in showing information in a intelligible way to user so that, Designer becomes in the last chain link.
Therefore, I think Designer must leave nothing to chance and being meticulous to plan a project.

Of course, creativity must be trained. I am a person who believes in ongoing learning, not only on technical issues but being update of last trends and news and reviewing the greatest designers’ works, both in design and in other disciplines.

Project Coordination
Ability to plan and coordinate a project from start to finish: contact with providers schedules, budgets,quality control, relationships with other departments, etc. There have been many projects I've had the opportunity to coordinate, starting from design and provider contracting, establishing timetables and coming to delivery of the finished product. In most cases, the project involved several components, so
that the planning is essential.

Creativity / Design Design elements of different types.
In these years I have designed a lot and very varied: exercise books, text books, flyers, corporate images, digital products ... In all cases, always starting with the pencil and paper and ending with the help of computer. For this work it is necessary to have a great aesthetic sense, but also have good analytical skills.
