The SAR week in Mexico City is one of those weeks where the city gets paralyzed. It's Watch Week but it might as well be the World Cup. Bvlgari hosted three days filled with press conferences, champagne brunches and an intimate dinner cooked by a celebrity chef for their high-rolling clients.
I designed the graphic visual identity including the invitation, menu and thank you stationery for the main event.
Hot it-bag designers Marcela Velez and Melissa Losada from M2Malletier asked me to create an illustration for their summer sale. It needed to captivate the sweet, tropical, humid summers from our childhood Colombia, eating arepas and snow cones in the town plazas. This design was used in their newsletter and website and social media outlets.
VERDE LIMÓN SWIMWEAR, Colombia
I've always loved this Colombian, avant-garde swimwear line. So when they asked me design the prints for their Tropicaland 2021
collection, I was over the moon. The collection was inspired in Cartagena, a place that I love because I grew up spending every
single new years and it's also where I got married. To me, the city is a delicious mix of sensuous palenqueras with fruit on their head, fried fish and coconut rice and salsa dancing in the salty breeze. Cartagena is home.
Silvia Tcherassi, Miami, Madrid, Cartagena
Iconic Colombian designer, Silvia Icherassi, asked me to create a logo to launch her SS2022 collection. I worked side by side with Silvia and her design team to immerse myself in her vision and her prints to design a logo that really encapsulated and represented the collection. I was spending a couple of weeks in Berlin as winter was approaching - this collaboration was my tropical escape at the time.
FUYU x Laia Alen, Barcelona
A little concoction to celebrate a collab between Barcelona-based brands Fuyu and Laia Alen. This became part of the packaging, the invitation and menu of the event. I sketched it, lathered it with color and finally laser-cut the paper over the dragons' spiky back to give it a little extra something.
Noa de Cajou // MILA JACK // Íme, Paris
A little storefront illustration to celebrate the launch of their boutique in the 16th arrondissement in Paris.
