Marta Cerdà Alimbau brings functional Beauty and Emotion in Design, translating each project into an effective design that is unique. Her main body of work is focussed on the boundaries between typography and illustration. While Marta’s style is strongly eclectic, she believes that the separation of this two disciplines into specialized activities is a limitation. Since 2008, she has worked on global projects which call for Art Direction, Design, Illustration and Custom Typography for Arts, Culture and Advertising Clients abroad.
