Who is Jorge Edo?

Hello, my name is Jorge...

profile

Hi, my name is Jorge, I am a professional art director, passionate strategist and experienced designer. As a kid, I discovered that there were some people who dedicated his life to translate ideas through images and, finding that an incredible skill, my obsession to study fine arts became.

After a long way, I finished Arts in 2014 at Madrid, including one year at the University of Design and Art at Paris 8, in France, where I focused my attention towards design and typography and present my first art exhibition. That obsession for visual information and art brought me to live in 3 countries, to learn three different languages, to learn code programming and, amongst other things, to co-found an art collective in the north of Spain (Espacio Matrioska) that still works in a national level as a cultural reference, a music collective with international recognition, and a clothing brand of moderate success.

After some months, in 2015 I started to work for an advertisement agency (Heinz, NH Hotels) and as a freelance art director for different business (Obralia, Endesa). However, I decided that design was a powerful tool...But I wanted to create the strategy that moves that tool. That is why I applied for the Master in Visual & Digital Media, a mix of branding and communication, at Instituto de Empresa, where I graduated in July 2017. Since then, I proudly have been dedicated to creating content as a designer, photographer, videographer, brand director and other positions in the field of communication and marketing for companies of movie production (Unstoppable Entertainment UK), media (Goiri Photography), movements (InsideOut Project), start-ups (Loovers.) and even big enterprises.
