INFO

  • Nice to meet you! My name is Antonio Lajara and I'm a graphic designer besides an art director based in Madrid. Currently I work (from home) at Virgen Extra. 🙃 And I like designing typefaces in my spare time!

I believe that design should be legible, clean, simple and forceful. Each element must be accompanied by a coherent graphical language. Therefore I make the effort to create expressive and ambitious visual concepts within the fields of branding, packaging, typography, print design and digital environments. Art direction led me to develop my personal vision and sensitivity towards communication of products and case of success, to always approach the concept and set of shootings.

In regard to my career in design, I started studying a Degree in Graphic Design at the Pedro Almodóvar College of Art (EAPA), followed by a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design and Advertising at the Antonio López College of Art (EAAL). Whenever I have a spot I try to refresh my knowledge attending intensive courses on topics like type design, branding, web design, animation or programming.

Think first, design later and always keep people in mind. This is my motto.
