Freelance designer from Barcelona (1995).
My work embraces different fields of design, mainly from product design and art direction to graphic design or research. Within my creative practice, I like to use design as a medium to empower and trigger debate in the form of objects, artifacts or stories. I believe design has a key responsibility to communicate, to instill harmony, to evoke.
