Hi! I’m Johanna Escobar ‘Ms.balloon’, a creative & handmade designer. My work consists of generating ideas and experimenting with objects and elements to make visual communication. That is a mixture of crafting, handmade design, photography and digital retouching. My most representative works are handmade and I’ve mainly used different types of materials like wood, paper, plastic as well as objects of daily usage (bread, pencils, candies, etc.) and recycled objects.

 

I consider myself as an autodidactic person who loves to learn through playing and experimentation. I studied Advertising and Public Relations at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Advertising Creativity in Brother – Barcelona (a school for creatives) and a Master in Strategic Planning and Branded Content at the University Pompeu Fabra. I’ve also taken many courses in illustration, digital processing, editing and I’ve got knowledge of photography and lighting, as well.

 

Currently I’m working as a freelance and co-worker in the Cadaver Exquisit Studio in Barcelona. I’m available for any kind of creative projects. Feel free to get in contact with me.

WHAT ABOUT MY FORMULA

0%

I’m fully convinced that the effectiveness of any piece of communication lies in knowing how to express a good concept differently. For this reason, as a first step I go online to search for references and investigate about different types of contents and images in order to conceptualize and created powerful images which speak for themselves. This is my formula!

  • Research
  • Concept

  • Sketch
  • Create
  • 'the Image'
