about marina

Having undertaken a BA in graphic design and visual communication at Bau, University College of Barcelona, Marina has also lived and studied in England and Australia, at the Academy of Design in Melbourne. She speaks Catalan and Spanish as mother tongues, extremely fluid English (Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency C2) and a little bit of German, as she took part in several study exchanges in Vienna, Austria.
Her creations have taken her to speak at design and art direction festivals such as Blanc, and the Art Directors Club of Europe, as part of the High Potentials. She has been interviewed by national radio station Cadena SER and Barcelona TV (Betevé).

Nature is a source of endless inspiration for her, and many of her personal projects reflect that.

The various projects shown in this website might lead to confusion, as they embrace a wide range of disciplines. The core of graphic design services is:

- To ask questions, to debate and raise awareness / come up with possible answers
- To find problems and think of possible solutions
- Art direction

- Identity design: custom typefaces, corporate elements (colors, logotype, imagotype, mood, message...)
- Editorial design: book layouts, book covers, magazines, leaflets, etc.
- Copywriting: naming, taglines, presentation paragraphs (in Catalan/Spanish/English)
- Posters / Banners online / offline / communication campaigns

- Record design for bands albums
- Packaging & labels
- Illustration applied to design
- Photography applied to design

- Website design & development (Rascality)
- App design & development (Rascality)
- Whatever digital (Rascality)

And of course, the combination of other skills and disciplines with design allows for wider projects and speculative design, including: bookbinding, sewing, woodworking, clothes making, furniture creating, pottery, digital art, watercolor, etc, leading to who knows what new production.
