Recently graduated from the MA in Type Design at Ecal and former collaborator at Lineto (Zürich, CH) on an educational research project in context of studies. Following his bachelor design studies at the Pontifical University of Chile (PUC), he went on to establish an independent practice by working on commissioned and self-initiated projects involving visual communication. His work spans from visual identities to editorial design, and from printed matter to digital, with a systematic approach and focus on typography.
