Barcelona-born art director, publisher and graphic designer, Omar Sosa, has a very unique vision and a knack for elevating the mundane to extraordinary. I don’t know about you, but I personally never thought everyday objects like kitchen utensils, bread, sticky tape and bricks could be this photogenic. Nor did I imagine it would be possible to turn them into such witty and sculptural works of art.

After obtaining a degree in graphic design Omar began working in the industry and later formed Folch Studio with Albert Folch, where he developed graphics and worked as an art director for a series of big name clients. In parallel to studio work, Omar also developed editorial projects working with various magazines. In 2008, together with his business partner Nacho Alegre, Omar founded the magazine Apartamento. Two years later he went on to win the prestigious Yellow Pencil Award for the best complete magazine of 2010 by the Designers and Art Directors Association (UK). Omar left Folch Studio in 2010 to base himself between Barcelona and Milan working with his own clients, whilst also taking charge of the art direction of the design magazine Casamica.
