Hello I’m DANI &

I’m A Transportation

Designer From

Barcelona

With experience in automotive and yacht design, I maintain a healthy balance between functionality and visual impact in all my work.
I believe every design can be a piece of art.

Skills

Design Thinking

Research, Innovation,
Passion & Creativity

Sketching

From the first ideas by hand,
to digital drawings

3d Modeling

To Build fast model or high-quality
production-ready surfaces

Rendering

To provide photorealistic images
or computer animations


When it come to yachts, I am a firm believer in the idea that designers should be pushing the aesthetic envelope and taking risks.

After all, car design has evolved a great deal in the last 50 years, so why can’t the same happen for boats.

For this reason, nowadays I am more focused in this sector, in order to bring fresh ideas.
