I am a professional illustrator and character design specialist who delivers innovative character-based artwork to international clients, helping them stand out from their competition.
From promoting products or services with eye-catching cartoons, to producing character designs for game companies, or artwork for explainer animations, I can help businesses get their message across in an illustrated format.
I combined my passion for drawing with a plethora of business skills I have refined during my previous career in finance and consulting to build my own company. Mascotize is a place where I can follow my passion for creating original artwork and character design while also helping businesses across the world find the face of their brand. .
With fluent language abilities in both Spanish and English, I am able to communicate widely with clients across the globe.
I illustrated two children's books in 2013 and 2014, both edited by the The Down Syndrome Foundation of Madrid. The books were specially created and designed for children with Down’s Syndrome and other developmental disabilities.
The pictograms and the layout I selected helped the children improve their reading abilities and enjoy spending more time with their books. I am proud to be associated with this charitable organisation and to know that these pictograms are used in specialized schools for children with Down Syndrome.
As creative leader and head of Mascotize, I oversee a team of talented illustrators and graphic designers in our mission to help businesses develop their brand and achieve wider recognition via Mascot Design.
At Mascotize we find the soul and unique personality of a business and transpose it into a conceptualized mascot design that perfectly reflects the brand to help the company connect with its key demographic.
During a period of 10 months I led a team of 3 illustrators and one animator in the production of digital stickers for mobile messaging applications. With responsibility for character designs, sticker illustrations and company branding, I oversaw all artwork and liaised with clients to define their project requirements.
Visixtwo is a digital sticker creator and publisher for instant messaging applications such as Line, Viber, Kik, WeChat, Kakao and BBM which provides its services across the world by translating its work into 11 different languages.
During this 15 month role working as an illustrator, I designed and developed a range of concepts for articles, blogs and websites that were related to current trending topics. This included a wide range of topics from political caricatures to cartoons about war.
I have produced a range of freelance work for clients in Spain and overseas. This includes companies such as Philymack, Line, Glide, Tactisoft, Orion Health, Eversnap, Thryver or PuntCat
