Jorge Lopez aka Expo is a graphic designer residing in Mexico, with an amazing portfolio and an important presence on just about every big design resource sites out there. But this statement alone can barely scratch the surface of this versatile individual.
He spent more than half of his life as a full time musician, starting from scratch with no knowledge on music and ending up getting two record label deals with national record companies then signing more than 30 tracks with international labels, together with his second band. When he discovered Photoshop in 1999 he proceeded just the same, engaging in his new passion without any guidance, evolving every day to the great self-taught designer he is now. At first he was creating graphic designs for friends until he discovered Design by Humans in 2008 and got his first print a year later. He’s been a full time freelance graphic designer since 2011. Oh, and did I mention he’s an avid skateboarder and BMXer, two other passions from his teenage years that he resumed later on?
As to his style, he’s not the type to follow trends, he creates freely based on his own aesthetic preferences. Nevertheless, his works easily fall into the popular zone of our modern culture, with his two main themes centered around animals/nature and space, subjects that had always fascinated him.
Drawing his inspiration from just about everything in his surroundings, words, lyrics, actions, movies, to the rich musical universe he holds inside, he likes to sum up his art as “Simple, Direct and Attractive”. Something you’re sure to discover in the following examples.
