Art Direction, Graphic Design, Typography
The Visual Project Colombia born from my experience of time outside of my country, and from observe how the view of many people about my country is poor, distorted and in some cases nonexistent.
While it is true that my country suffered the ravages of violence, mass media have published only a small part of our reality, and much less of our culture to the world.
I ask to myself now: What country in the world, throughout his history, has not been a victim of economic, political, religious, armed and/or war troubles?.
We know that human history has developed in the midst of problems that have led us to be who we are as countries. But whatever it be, I think, the problem is not that bad people exist, the trouble what happens is that we, the good mans, do nothing.
So this time I spend in the area of my practice as a designer, to talk about the experiences I have of my country, to show part of its rich culture and some of the things that of him less people say. So when someone asks for my country, you have clarity and reason to speak well of Colombia.
El Proyecto Visual Colombia nace de experiencias devenidas de mi estadía fuera de mi país natal, y de observar cómo la visión de muchas personas acerca de mi país es escasa, distorsionada y en algunos casos nula.
Si bien es cierto que mi país ha sufrido los flagelos de la violencia, los medios masivos de comunicación han dado a conocer sólo una pequeña parte de nuestra realidad, como también mucho menos de nuestra cultura al mundo.
Me pregunto ahora: qué país del mundo durante su historia no ha sido victima de problemas económicos, políticos, religiosos, armados y/o bélicos?.
Sabemos bien que la historia humana se ha desarrollado en medio de problemáticas que nos han llevado a ser lo que somos como pueblos. Pero como quiera sea, pienso yo, el problema no radica en que existan personas malas, lo que sucede es que los buenos no hacemos nada.
Por ello dedico en este momento un espacio de mi ejercicio como diseñador a hablar de las experiencias que tengo de mi país, a mostrar parte de su rica cultura y parte de las cosas que de él poco se dicen. Para que cuando alguien pregunte por mi país, usted tenga claridad y razones para hablar bien de Colombia.
I have the honor to present a project made with the agency “77 Creative” and animated by “Freakish Kid” for the channel MTV LIVE HD.
I collaborated on this project contributing to the general idea of the history and its conceptual background, and off course, developing the characters which were then animated.
Each character in the illustrations were drawn separately and composed together in formats 4 times higher than the resolution HD.Illustration, Character Design, Graphic Design2012
With regularity, on my notebooks, I design and perform countless lettering works by the pure pleasure of seeing the flowing lines creating images with a specific poetic visual impact.

The unedited book "Last Rites" was born from the need of do an emotional exorcism and release poetry as excuse to make a personal editorial experimental design.
The conceptual foundation is in the typographic game, and the structure throughout the book come from "mantic" practices such as numerology, cartomancy and the ancient alchemy to share parts for the development of the relations between lovers, from love, trought deep relationship and finally the loss of this relation. These stages are identified by each of the above symbologies mantic practices.
The making of the book since the first idea to do until his digital completion delayed 9 years, becuse the book change many times their modes of presentation.
After 3 years of completion, the book still looking for an editor.Graphic Design, Editorial Design, Typography2009
