Welcome! My name is Raúl Gil. 

I work creating illustrations and visual contents for brands, products and all kinds of publications around the world, as well as developing projects in which design, art and technology go hand in hand. Would you like us to work together?

MY WORK

I like to create images that flee from neutrality, telling little stories inhabited by characters that transmit life and emotion, through a simple language of gestural outline and vibrant colors. I love pop culture, cinema, literature and any medium in which images, words and/or interaction combine to tell stories.

MY CAREER

I've dedicated almost 20 years of my life to design, developing brands and digital products for all kind of companies. My experience in multiple fields of design offers me a better understanding of the needs and idiosyncrasies of clients and projects. While design connects me with the reality of a society in constant change, illustration allows me to explore a more personal and genuine expression.

INTERESTS

I am strongly interested in philosophy, folklore and science fiction and I deeply value exploration and constant learning. If you want to know more about some of my creative preferences, don’t forget to read the Etc. section
