Illustration & notebook design
I designed this illustration for a notebook, which is part of a larger stationery collection called «Connect». For this design I followed the whole creative process: I designed the mood board of the collection, defined the products, made a trend analysis, pick the fabrics, designed the artwork, and followed the process until the final sample.

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the pace of life? Not having time for yourself or your loved ones? In this fast-paced, stressful world, it’s easy to disconnect from yourself and lose a healthy life balance. This «Connect» collection invites people to connect with their inner world, and thus achieve their mental, physical and emotional well-being.
I designed this collection during my quarantine in Barcelona. I live in front of the Rambla de Catalunya, where there are always crowds of people walking, talking and generating a lot of noise day and night. Going from the chaos of the Rambla and the world, to an imposed confinement, required me to be more still, so I entered a more meditative state. At that moment I connected with my inner peace and it led me to think that in the face of so many distractions that we have in life, sometimes we forget to listen to ourselves more, to not always be in action, but also to stop.

The collection was presented at the «Shanghai Paper World», China, November 2020.
This situation, which a large part of humanity was experiencing, led me to share and support the message of the importance of an inner connection. This connection is important to be able to better connect with others and listen to our intuition and thus achieve mental, physical and emotional wellbeing.
I then created a line of functional products with motivational words, which accompany people on that colorful inner journey. A girl appears walking, doing yoga in her magical inner world, full of spiritual illustrations, playing with the sun, the moon, and walking through the universe. 
That girl invites us to connect with our own inner world and explore it, for our emotional well-being, in order to go out into the world with more love and peace.
