PORTRAID

           I am a self-taught graphic designer and musician from Lima, Perú based in Athens. Due to an independent education of formal institutions and based mainly on old manuals and distance courses, I find myself in a constant search for methodologies and creative processes. I am currently experimenting in the field of strategic graphic design that involves creative dynamics during the process of pre- and post-conceptualization.

           The projects selected here try to show a comparison between the different presentations that project after project has been changing. That is why I have uploaded to Issuu the presentation files that explain in more detail the different procedures in the different projects.

An experimental graphic proposal for a group of musicians who have given up the idea of originality.
A band that lives in "...a city obsessed not only with the past, but for the lost future", quoting Mark Fisher, and a song by Motorama: “ goodbye future, I stayed in my memories goodbye future, I'm done with it “.

A graphic project that tries to justify why in the Peruvian underground scene there are no longer original bands and an imitative scene has been created. The proposal of visual indetity for this cover band is accompanied by a fanzine with a monthly publication.
