Designer & Art Director - Strategic Brand DesignLondon, United Kingdom
About me
I am a Colombia-born strategic brand designer and art director based in London. I focus on activating brands’ essence through engaging visual communication. I collaborate with other creatives and artists to bring a holistic perspective, producing work that positively impacts our society culturally and commercially. While living in Colombia, I worked as an art director in award-winning advertising agencies for national and international brands. I developed concept campaigns, directed photography sessions and developed key visuals, resulting in Gold and Silver Effie awards. If you are interested to know more about me or collaborate, I am always open for a chat.
