Description

Astonishments Collection - CQTC Branding Talent, Consulado General de España en Edimburgo

Through lectures and workshops Isidro Ferrer encourages designers and design students to see, value, and reinvent the vernacular around them. He combines his work as a graphic designer with intense work in the field of illustration, creating comics, animations for television, or publishing children's books and unclassifiable books. He has won various international awards for his work as a graphic designer and illustrator. He has published over 20 books. About Ferrer: it is said that he works by "devoration", like the verse making machine imagined by Juan de Mairena: "On one side the world enters and on the other side poetry comes out". Ferrer's work is full of information often combining found items with simple graphic elements. His solutions are eclectic, whimsical and diverse.
