Hello!

Yorlán

I am Yorlán Cabezas Padrón, a designer born in Havana in 1983. In 2007, I graduated from the Superior Institute of Design as Informational designer.

I have been working as freelance designer since 2011. The areas of graphic design that I prefer are illustration, visual identity and editorial design. Some of my references are Jean Giraud (Moebius), Muñoz Bachs, José Luis Posada, Reinaldo Alfonso, Ernesto Martínez Blanco and Jan Saudek.

Besides, I am interested in exploring design as a visual art in evolution.

 

Works

In my work I seek to combine training as a graphic designer with my artistic concerns in the field of art. I believe in the organic fusion between the evocation of art and the functionality of design.

Illustration

In the field of illustration, I have been working in projects for children and adults.

 

Identity

I like to mix styles of different visual arts in identity projects.

 

The magazine

The Cuban design and visual arts magazine was one of my main editorial design project.

Entitled D aquí,  was a digital magazine with specialized contents about Cuban designers, architects and visual artists located anywhere in the world. Between 2015 and 2018, I made the artistic direction and graphic design of the magazine.
