Carlos Arrojo's use of striking linework and attention to simplified detail are the main characteristics that define his refined illustration style. Based in the coastal city of La Coruna in Spain, his use of geometries, repetition and sinuous shapes are inspired by nature and modernism. Carlos graduated from the University of Vigo with a major in painting and followed up with additional study of the technical aspects of graphic design. He works for a variety of international clients in the fields of book publishing, advertising, editorial and poster design, as well as teaching and lecturing.
