We are starting 2017 with new members of our team at Concalma! Jorge Lopez Chocarro & Dani Lloveras Marxuach, the designers and developers of shopconcalma.com, will be taking on the direction of the online store.
Dani Lloveras is a visual artists from San Juan, Puerto Rico based in Barcelona and previously in NYC. She did her B.F.A in Fine Arts at Parsons The New School for Design, and her B.A. in Psychology at Eugene Lang The New School University in NYC. With drawing as the starting point, she combines visual mediums and theories of cognitive science to create spaces for cultural production, critical thinking, and collaboration. She co-founded AMO Studios in NYC — a project to reclaim space for artists, by experimenting with curatorial approaches and the notion of a multi-purpose space— and then moved to Barcelona to further pursue her interest in Psychology. While in Barcelona she completed her Master’s degree in Cognitive Science and Languages at the University of Barcelona but became increasingly interested in graphic design and publication as a different medium to continue executing her ideas. This led to many collaboration with Jorge Lopez Chocarro.
Jorge Lopez Chocarro is a graphic designer from Zaragoza, Spain. He studied Graphic Design at ESDA University in Zaragoza, and continued his studies in Barcelona doing a Masters in Web design & Development at Elisava University. His interest are focused on user interface design as a way of integrating our physical and technological world, typography, and illustration. With over eight years of experience he has worked both as a freelancer and in various companies in the web & graphic design industry of Barcelona. He is one of the co-founder of 72 studio, a graphic design studio based in Barcelona that took on many interactive design and media projects. After that, he began to work for Friend2friend, a platform for brands & agencies promotion, and then with Visual-Engin, a software and app development company, as a web & app designer. He has also taught some courses of web design and development in Barcelona as part of a social program for the unemployed.
We are very excited to start working together & collaborate on future projects :)
