AUBURN UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF INDUSTRIAL + GRAPHIC DESIGN BFA IN GRAPHIC DESIGN

Marcelo Blanco grew up in Paraguay and spent the last decade living and exploring cities in Spain, Argentina, and the U.S. His holistic design approach is shaped by nomadism, philosophy, social sciences, and technology. Marcelo loves to research and believes that the design process is fundamental to developing concepts and discovering practical solutions. In the near future, he plans to learn more about 3D modeling, UX design, photography, videography, and animation. Upon graduation, Marcelo hopes to find work in a city where he, his wife Nancy, and their three dogs (Mozart, Cyrus, and Luca) can grow and feel at home.
