I hold an MA in Typeface Design from the University of Reading (graduating with distinction); host one of the main podcasts and publications on typography in Spanish (Don Serifa); organise and teach an international one-week type design workshop (Glíglifo); and I am a regular speaker in type and design events.
In my day-to-day work, I build relationships with agencies and brands; research type trends and innovative letter flavours; and reflect on how to keep tricking the brain and the eye to solve legibility issues.
My main passions are stories and narratives, and how language can become tactile. I spend most of my spare time writing, reading and bookworming compulsively. However, I do not hesitate to get my nose out of a book when there is a good basketball game to watch or a new destination to explore.
