Esteve Bou

Graphic design
& Art direction


My name is Esteve Bou.
I’m a graphic designer & art director based in Barcelona. I also offer creative strategy. I like to think of different ways to make people and businesses friends. When I get it, you win more money, thus you're happier. You pay me and my wife Pilar and my sons Martí & Joan are also happier. I like to see how my work makes the world a better place.

I'm methodical and perfectionist. I listen, analyze and solve. I admire honest and powerful work, which are essentially straight. I believe in brands with voice to create stories. A bowling pot in echange for 15 cupounds is not a good story. But sometimes you need to deal with it. You can't be always winning.

Open for collaborations, new ideas or old, if they are still good.
Let’s talk!
