Javier de Riba
1985, Esplugues de Llobregat (Barcelona)
A creative designer and illustrator born in Barcelona, Javi has worked at various agencies and studios in the role of Art Director (Clase BCN, Postdata BCN, and Silberball Wien, to name a few). Nowadays, he works as part of the Reskate Arts & Crafts Collective, who develop graphics and communication projects with a focus on sustainability and humane treatment.
With each new endeavour, his restlessness brings him to question his personal style, and reinterpret it to best serve each project. For Javi, each piece challenges his aesthetic, driving him to try new styles and techniques while balancing his existing abilities with his desire for growth and exploration. His journey is an ongoing battle against stagnancy, in favour of versatility and innovation.
