Meet Your Creator
My name is Iván Caíña and I am a craftsman of letters. Through writing, always handwritten, I face any commission with letters as the main characters. My work, with more than 10 years of experience, covers many fields: from projects for international brands (such as Calvin Klein, Puma, or Samsung), advertising, logos, design events to murals. While continuing to train whenever I can, I have transferred my knowledge to an experimental path, thus developing a very personal and expressive style. In addition to working in my Madrid studio, I also travel to teaching workshops at schools, universities, and design festivals. I am passionate about my work and I enjoy teaching it, so do you want to join my passion for letters too?
Letters entered my life for years in a vocational way even before I trained in graphic design. My beginnings were 15 years ago, with graffiti, and then I focused on developing my career in graphic design in which the letter had its leading role. I have always believed in the great communicative power of letters and throughout these years I have developed my own style, based on constantly experimental work, always without neglecting learning, humility, and consistency, which for me are the fundamental pillars for a job well done. My passion for design covers all its aspects: art, architecture, photography, fashion, and so on and each of these disciplines provides me with all the visual stimuli that are fundamental to my work.
