Teacher Plus
Graphic Designer and Instagrammer

Héctor Campoy, better known as Héctor Merienda, is a graphic designer who got his start by studying analog photography and processing. This background has undoubtedly influenced the way he crafts his compositions, making his Instagram feed a deep ocean of images you could dive into and explore for hours.

Seascapes, cheese, and bicycles—these are just some of his favorite things, which he eclectically captures in the photos that flood his social media. Like many of us, he started off posting photos of his cat, using Instagram to document his day-to-day experiences as part of his personal visual journal. Today, top companies like WeTransfer, Sony, Olympus, and Jaguar trust him with their biggest campaigns, which goes to show how far he's come since he took his first steps on Instagram in 2010.
