Client reviews


‘Direct and solid creative concepts together with a simple and powerful graphic formalization’
Olga Pérez Estrada
Communication manager at Barcelona City Council


‘When I think of his work I think of something heavy, something solid, profound, simple, resounding, indestructible. It is a very clear sensation, and very unusual. I think of Aristu and somewhere in my head Chillida appears. Also Japan. I am afraid that some day one of his works will fall on my foot’
Toni Segarra
Founder and creative general director of the advertising agency SCPF


‘Elegance in the manners, in disagreeing and accepting opinions, elegance in the final outcome: a campaign that contributed, no doubt, to exhibition on Stanley Kubrick being the success that was’
Susana Fernández Alonso
Head of advertising at CCCB/Center of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona
