Hi!

I'm Leire Bueno, a graphic designer + illustrator. Although I was born and raised in Bilbao, I have lived here and there over the years. I graduated in Film and Communication from the University of the Basque Country. After realizing that my calling was to pursue a career as an illustrator, I decided to move to the Mediterranean Coast, where I got my Master's Degree in Design and Illustration from the Polytechnic University of Valencia.

A year ago, an unexpected twist of script took me back to the Atlantic, although this time my destiny was on the other shore, in New York. Working in the Big Apple has allowed me to become more chameleonic and versatile, knowing how to adapt my work to the demands of the project. I now live in Madrid, where I make of my passion my profession.
