Elio Salichs

Se tituló en el año 1999 por la Escola Superior de Disseny i Art Llotja. En el 2010-11 realiza el Master en Tipografía Avanzada en Eina Centre Universitari de Disseny i Art de Barcelona.

Desde entonces, trabaja de forma independiente en su propio estudio.

En el año 2012 cursó el taller “Sistemas Visuales Flexibles para Identidades Visuales” y en el 2013 el taller “Tipografía Suiza y Proyecto Editorial”, en Design Werkstatt. En 2015 asistió a Lupi Asensio y Martin Lorenz en el tramo final de la tesis doctoral Sistemas visuales en identidades dinámicas del Dr. Martin Lorenz.

Algunos de sus trabajos han sido premiados en diversos festivales nacionales e internacionales (New York Festivals y Europe Best of Health) y seleccionados en anuarios como el Selected Europe.
