View Resume

I am from Germany and Venezuela. I have moved a lot. I have lived in Germany, Honduras and Brazil and therefore speak four languages. My passion for Typography and Design has always been in my Daily-Life-Routine. I finish my bachelor in December 2016 at the Academy of Visual Arts in Frankfurt, Germany in Kommunikation Design (communication design). I enjoy trying out new handwritten fonts and letters. I also love illustration. One of the things I have always with me is my sketchbook. I enjoy writing down or drawing down ideas that pop into my head. I keep a black and white style in all of my works.
