Pep Carrió

Pep Carrió was born in 1963, in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. He is a graphic designer with a vast experience in editorial and cultural design, and has consolidated a resolutely public work. His images for book covers –Biblioteca Vargas Llosa by Alfaguara, Santillana Educación, Taurus– posters –Liceo de Barcelona, Injuve, Ministry of Culture– and award statues –Premio Leyenda (Legend Price), Premio al Mejor Álbum Ilustrado (Best Illustrated Picture Book Award) for the Bookseller Union of Madrid and Premio de Poesía Aula de las Metáforas (Hall of Metaphors Poetry Price)– come to our encounter in different libraries, schools, museums, streets and squares.

Pep Carrió, a patient illustrator, has contributed to the establishment of a unique bibliography: Poemas del trampolín (Trampoline Poems), 30 de Diciembre (December 30th), Cartas Marcadas (Marked Playing Cards), Una niña (A girl), In prensa, Diario Visual (Visual Journal). These publications transcended the market scope, becoming a reference of a way of doing illustration.
