David Torrents (Barcelona, 1971) is a multidisciplinary designer with expertise in commercial and non-commercial projects, which are often closely aligned with art.

«When I was a kid, I always enjoyed my way to school, passing an array of posters on the streets of Barcelona. Strongly connected to the pulse of city life, this daily childhood experience planted the seed of passion for poster design deep within me and made me the urban artist I am today.»

He graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona, and also studied at the Elisava Barcelona School of Design. Before setting up his own studio in 2002, he worked in Amsterdam, Budapest and in several design studios and agencies in Barcelona.

David has received over 50 design awards and has often been invited to sit on international award juries. He teaches at the Bau Design College of Barcelona and IDEP Barcelona, leads workshops and gives lectures at design festivals and fine arts universities.

Many of the projects on this website have been done with collaborators who worked at the studio: Juan Esbert, Jordi Ubanell, Laura Estragués, Germán Chamorro, Maria Berga, Anaïs Esmerado and Silvia Míguez. Currently David works with Alba Font.
