I’m Digital Designer and Art Director based on Brooklyn.
My work spans many disciplines, largely focused on brand systems, web design, app design, art direction and their interdependence. I seek a personal language away from results that rely on purely graphic solutions, understanding than frequently the most complex problems don’t need immediate visual responses yet design philosophy first.
I’ve been closely involved in large-scale teams with multiple scopes for clients like Instagram, Marriott, Shiseido, Nescafe, Tumblr, Microsoft, MTV, Google, among others. Also I’ve helping small startups and medium size companies to shape their brands, products and strategies in very early stage.
My work has been featured in diverse publications, having a special mention «Historia del Diseño Gráfico en México 1910-2010» an anthology of the visual culture in Mexico in the last century. I’ve participated in exhibitions in Japan, United States, Poland, Slovakia, Bolivia, Mexico and China.
In 2016 I designed my first typeface «Exilia», available for public use. I teach the webinar «Contemporary Productions» at the Anahuac University, a course about critique and the relationship between design, society, technology and economy. I currently work as visual designer at IBM.
