My name is Gabriela Basin and my work is fun and versatile, so it can be used in many different fields, from products to long campaigns, murals, books or press. I always approach my commissions by looking for an idea and transforming it into an image with powerful concepts and fun colors. Besides my illustration and art direction work, I teach workshops as a freelance and give mentorship to other creatives.


As a very passionate and committed human, I like working on subjects that speak to me, such as gender equality or climate change, hopefully they speak to you too!.

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and I’m based in Barcelona, Spain. I count on a very large formation among 3 degrees and with a results-driven mindset I work on my own and have 10 years of experience managing projects from beginning to end in a wide variety of industries every day.
