Hi there!!! First of all I would like to say "thank you" for visiting this little "portfolio". 

This is Mariano Tardón Izquierdo, a visual artist and designer from Madrid (Spain). As far as I can remember I loved doing drawings all day everyday when I was little, to make a long story short, at around the age of 16, after Art High School, I decided to start studying a degree on Illustration and Graphic Design in a Public Art school called: "Escuela de artes y oficios nº 10" (aka: "artediez").

After my Illustration and Graphic Design studies, and several jobs, when I was about to turn 24, I came across with web design, just before 2003, and it was love at first sight. Since I began working as a visual artist and designer I've been trying to improve my skills and, of course, learning lots of new things. Fortunately I'm still learning everyday, that's one the main reasons, among others, for what I really love what I do so as to make a living. 

Throughout my career as a visual artist and designer, for over 10 years, I have had the chance to work on many different projects, from branding to web and mobile apps, such as Bitmonlab, Memento, Nrich, Kuasars, Planorama, The AppHunter, Aywant, Turing, El Petit Circus, CrowdHabitat, IZ, and so on. While working on a project my favourite tools are normally my pencils and pens (usually at early stages of each project), Photoshop, Illustrator and HTML & CSS editors. I used to work a lot with tools such as Flash and Freehand, not very long ago, on web banner campaigns, web animations, and so on, but not anymore. These days I'm really into new tools such as Sketch, UXPin, Invision, Marvelapp, etc.

Here I'll share with you some of my favorite works. You will find some "Graphic" designs, "Web" designs, "App" designs, Illustrations, "on-line media campaign master pieces",... I hope you like them all.

We can chat about nearly anything here (I love chatting with friends, how about you?): 

See you soon!!!
