About me

Illustrator, graphic designer and image editor based in Amsterdam. The blurred line between realism and fiction has captivated me for as long as I can remember, and that curiosity only grows with time. I love clean yet outspoken design, the kind you can’t pass by without looking twice, taking a photo, and adding to your “inspiration” folder. I’m venezuelan and dutch. Born and raised in Caracas, and based in the Netherlands since 2016. This has influenced my approach to both design and illustration. Over the years, I’ve taken elements of both european and latin-american culture and aesthetic and made them my own.

          • After working as Illustrator and photo editor, at Festina, I later on also took on the role of Operations Manager, which has allowed me to cultivate my management and administrative skills. I took this somewhat peculiar position because it has allowed me to have the complete overview of the whole creative process from A (strategy) to Z (production) of several branding and digital productions for clients that go from small start-ups to big corporations. It has allowed me to develop skills such as: Leadership, Conflict Management, Business Negotiation, Decision-Making, People Management, Data Processing Skills, Reporting Skills, Budget Development, Delegation skills.

At Festina, we create outspoken identities in a digital era. Our specialty: connecting Brand and Digital – two pillars that are often separated across teams and companies. We believe this is critical for brands that want to grow, and for businesses that want to reinvent themselves and stand out in today’s digital world. We align goals and audiences, we deliver creative concepts, and we build digital ecosystems, from strategy to service. We work with clients that go from small start-ups to big corporations.
