Pilar Torcal is a Barcelona born and raised designer and illustrator who dreamt of being a gymnast, a model, and an archaeologist as a kid.
After studying advertising and trying out luck as an account executive, she realized that colors and type had always been what she really liked to fill her time with. She then went back to study and after working for a while at a small editorial design studio in the center of the city, she moved to NY to first start working at the women-led studio mgmt design and later on for a big digital design agency called Huge Inc.
From editorial design to infographics passing through apps and sites, she’s been able to design for all types of surfaces and functions and she believes her illustration style really was born from all the iconography she’s worked on through the years.
Currently back in Europe and starting out her career independently, she’s focused on illustration, art direction and design, working remotely for clients who are mainly US based at the moment.
