Welcome to Studio Capo.
I'm a freelancer working on Art Direction, Graphic Design, Film and Illustration.
The studio is based in Barcelona but I'm open to travel and meet new people to work on interesting projects.
We offer services of film direction, art direction, graphic design, illustration and animation... and any of the interaction fileds between the previous.
The studio has given service to some of the best film production companies in Barcelona like Canada and Nanouk films, either directing or working on the art and styling departments for their music clips and commercials and also offering graphic design solutions to their needs and promotional items.
Studio Capo has created videos for Bershka and Mango, Zurich University of the Arts, music clips for local bands and helped out top Art Directors like IamClim to make their visions become real. From painting to cartooning, prop artist, character design, animated GIFs, stopmotion and time-lapses to creating full identity, branding and art directing local brands, anything is possible at Studio Capo.
What do my clients say about us?
Lope Serrano - Co-Founder & Director at CANADA:
Ferran is a versatile and resolutive bold visual artist. My experience with him during the shooting of the music promo 'The Less I Know the Better' for the Australian band Tame Impala was great: communication was easy and his response was way abroad my expectations. He designed both the patterns and logotypes respecting the brief and adding strength and visual cohesion to the project. He is also a professional committed to work processes. He always delivers on deadlines and is generous in his effort.
Kristina Juodenas - Art Director at Lonely Planet Magazine USA:
I'm super happy with how the ilIustrations turned out, and so is everyone else! I wanted to share some feedback from the editors. This from the Managing Editor here at our US edition - "really digging those illustrations!", and this from the Deputy Editor at our UK edition - "Those illos are wild - in a good way!"
Clim - Creative & Art Director at iamclim:
I directed a project with him and he also collaborated with me on other projects and it has been always a pleasure.
His "Let's do it!" attitude and multi-skilled profile makes him the perfect man. Very hard worker, enthusiast for making things happen, passionate and eager to improve and learn.
When he is not directing he is also really good on taking directions and makes sure the results are what they are supposed to be.
Always smiley, good sense of humour, humble and honest.
Working with Ferran doesn't bring anything but joy.

Studies & Previous Work
I studied design at EINA where I learnt the basics on Graphic Design, Illustration and Product Design. During my studies I moved to
the Technische Univeristeit in Delft, Holland, for an Erasmus exchange. After that I did a couple of internships at Magaztem de Disseny and Estudio Antoni Arola. Recently I attended to the 2017 Online Marketing Course of Hyper Island.
While developing some creative projects I also worked as Content Director for Dailymotion Spain during 7+ years. In Dailymotion I acquired a deep understanding and know-how of online video strategy and distribution.
I teach a master class of video in the 2017 Social Media Strategy course at Complot School.
In 2013 and 2014 I also taught a master class on online video strategy at the ESCI-UPF Internatonal Digital Marketing Master.
Nowadays I'm focusing on Photography, Design, Direction and Art Direction.
I have a wide range of creative skills and a problem solving mind set.
