Teacher Plus
Illustrator and designer

Óscar Lloréns is an illustrator and designer. He has worked for the best advertising agencies in Spain, the US, Canada, France and the United Kingdom. His illustrations have been protagonists of campaigns for important brands such as Coca-Cola, Fiat, Red Bull, Cirque du Soleil, Vodafone, Movistar, Cepsa, Schweppes, Orange, Repsol or Peugeot. Nothing can resist him!

He has a very personal and recognizable style of drawing, his works have been defined as "variegated, baroque and full of elements" , fruit of two main influences: the first, a trip to Japan where he discovered how thousands of perfectly ordered small pieces could form a fascinating and perfect whole. The second, the bulky migraines that have suffered for more than 15 years. His helplessness in the face of pain, became drawings of sensations, stacked characters, staterooms of the Marx Brothers of the most amusing.

Precisely his style is the main attraction that has made agencies around the world claim their services. To show a button: Saatchi & Saatchi Berlin, Young & Rubicam, TBWA, BBDO, The laboratory, Leo Burnet, Mrs. Rushmore, EuroRSCG, Counterpoint, Delvico, JWT ... almost nothing.
