I’m Núria Vila, a graphic designer and art director specializing in corporative identity, editorial and packaging design, and visual communication. I currently work from Roca Umbert Fàbrica de les Arts in Granollers, Barcelona.

I design with a compromise with the environment, aiming to apply common sense in each project and working in a more sustainable and ethic way. Working with the hands, experimenting and collaborating with other disciplines is how I understand design. I believe in networking, investigating and discovering new ways of communication, applicable to the needs of each project.

I work closely with clients to come up with a concept and develop together those ideas that, from the minimum, manage to communicate the maximum.
