Hi, I'm Miguel Montaner

I’m currently crossing Thailand by bicycle, after a great and fun ride that took me through North East India and Myanmar.
I brought a laptop and my head is still at place, so I remain a full-time illustrator. Don’t hesitate to drop me a line if you need anything.

Bio

I was born near the sea, only a stone's throw from Barcelona. Now I carry out my work as an illustrator wherever I am, working for magazines, newspapers and advertising agencies.
Illustrations are the vehicles that I've had handy to share my ideas. With them I’ve found the balance between reflection and execution, the proper way to communicate the concept without forgetting aesthetics.
I'm interested in going beyond the limitations of the meaning, playing with the denotation and connotation of things. I'm amazed by how naturally the brain reads impossible images.

Clients

I've been working for some years now. During this time I've had the real pleasure to work with great people from all over the globe such as

M&C Saatchi | The New York Times | Transport For London | The Boston Globe | The Washington Post | WIRED | Adweek | Computer Arts | Emirates | General Electric | HSBC | Fast Company | MIT Technology Review | Harvard Business Review or Royal Academy of Arts

, to mention a few of them.
