Miguel Álvarez Aparicio,
multidisciplinary designer.

My name is Miguel Álvarez Aparicio and I'm a Spanish graphic designer. I was born in Toledo (Spain) however I moved to Madrid when I turned 18 in order to study Journalism at the UCM (Universidad Complutense de Madrid). After finishing my studies and making internships in several medias I ended up working with the layout of a national Spanish magazine called Tiempo. At the same time I started doing the layout for the Spanish version of the yearly special number of The Economist, The World in... for the years 2010 and 2011.

After that I lived in Bogotá (Colombia) for a while. Over there I decided that I need to improve my skills in design. After moving back I started a Master's degree in Editorial Design at the Istituto Europeo di Design. At that time I started testing myself in all the different areas of graphic design: magazines, books, web, apps, illustration, branding or UI/UX.

Everything looks interesting to me. My curiosity never ends and I always want to go on learning and discovering new faces of design. Design can be implemented in absolutely every aspect of life. As Herbert Simon said: "The proper study of mankind is the science of design".

Since 2015 I work as a graphic editor for the web version of the economic newspaper Äripäev. Here I have expanded my experience in digital design and experimented with interactive graphics and data driven graphics. At the same time I have made several works with my own design studio, MAZ Design, in printed magazines, websites and branding.
