María Ramos Silva

Santiago de Compostela, Spain
My life story is one of a dreamer. From an early age I became aware of the importance of handcraft and smart design, my dad being a tailor. This vocation became a passion when I started my degree in Advertising.
In the last few years I have spent a great amount of time working on varied and exciting projects for very different companies and institutions. One thing has not changed: time seems to stop when I am creating.
