Graphic and type designer born in Santiago, Chile. 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.

Year By Year is a project started together by Ignacio Pérez (designer and coder) and me. It raises the idea of exploring the relation between the visualization and perception of time by means of non-traditional formats starting, for example, from a particular object —a calendar—. This opens up an invitation for both collaboration with new artists, designers or programmers as well, to generate tangible proposals (printed matter, objects or installations) and intangible experiences (on-screen or interactive) that communicate these ideas and visual explorations.

The 2018 edition consisted on a self-made printed calendar of which we printed a limited edition of 100 focused on presenting the passing of time in a physical way, using a 4.5 meters long string of paper that accumulated on the floor each month.
