I have worked in design for over twelve years, leading projects in all phases of the process, from naming to concept, from coordination and realisation to production. My portfolio is composed of identity projects and communication design for enterprises and entrepreneurs, self-initiated projects, type design and lettering. My work is not devoted to a style, but on using languages and tools that fit each project. I feel as comfortable with using manual techniques as with digital media.
I grew up in Buenos Aires and lived in Barcelona and The Hague before finally settling down in Berlin. I have dedicated many years of my life to both studying and teaching, gaining a Postgraduate in Communication Design in Escola Elisava, a Master in Type & Media in KABK and conducting research at HS Anhalt. I have been a lecturer for several years at the University of Buenos Aires and more recently at Hochschule Anhalt. Apart from teaching in academic institutions, I run and organise workshops in type design and lettering to expand my expertise while conveying the knowledge I have acquired throughout my career.
If you want to commission work, lectures or you’re interested in hosting one of my workshops e-mail me or my representative Handsome Frank.
