Felipe Urquijo Molina
Graphic / Interactive Designer
I am from Bogotá, Colombia. I have always been passionate about visual communication. At primary school, I drew and painted all the time. I remember when I was drawing the time went by very fast, everything around me disappeared and my mind was deeply immersed in my sketches. My first contact with graphic and visual communication was through comics. I used to spend hours creating characters and stories.
My learning experience from a BA in Graphic Design, a MA in Design for Interactive Media and eleven years working in the Digital and Web industry have allowed me to think critically about how to find ways to portray ideas, store knowledge in visual forms and bring clarity to information. Likewise, how these ways are linked strongly to the social, technological and economic life of our time. Therefore, I am always keen on adapting my skills and work processes to new changes. Clients such as Virgin Games, Heart FM, Nokia, Weyth, Cisco Systems, Lowe SSPM and Oracle have been the evidence of this development.
Similarly, my awareness of the eclectic, immediacy and ephemeral nature of graphic design and its intrinsic relationship with technology have led me to acquire technical knowledge in the Adobe Creative Suite and language such as CSS3, HTML5, ActionScript and jQuery.
