A course by Joluvian

Graphic designer, calligrapher, typographer and illustrator

After a lifetime as a designer, illustrator and publicist, Joluvian began a few years ago a romance with the alphabet and strokes with brushes. Since then he has not stopped making letters, "it is a return to the origins, to the previous thing to the computers, he points out, to return to the manual stroke, the one that gives a unique characteristic to each letter or word because there are no two equal lines. But with the advantages of current technology that allows you to then pass everything to digital format. "

Joluvian studied graphic design in Mérida (Venezuela), and worked for many years as an art director in the same city, then he did in Valencia (Venezuela), Tijuana, Mexico and Caracas, in the latter he studied in haute cuisine. In 2009 he decided to move to Spain, where he did a master's degree in 3D and postgraduate studies in illustration, while he began to take courses in calligraphy and lettering.

He has studied, and continues to do so, in Spain and Italy with major industry, although he always had an innate talent for stroke and drawing, "when I was 8 years old my parents enrolled me in a drawing and painting course because they saw that I had skills , and I always looked at the covers that our dad made in school notebooks because he had a very nice and stylized handwriting. Later, when I started studying design, I forgot about manual work as I used the computer more, until I got into calligraphy. Actually, to go back to the lyrics, it has been to return to my original vocation ".
