Carla Lucena

Based in Spain, Carla Lucena is a graphic design and illustrator who uses dreamy soft textures and pastel colours to build her vintage aesthetic. With a focus on architecture, people and nature, and taking inspiration from mid-century design, Carla’s vector illustrations are clean and stylish.

Her career began as an art director in the advertising world for agencies such as Ogilvy and Mccann, though she quickly realised her preferred creative language was in fact illustration. Carla has been illustrating ever since, winning accolades from Lurzers and working for clients such as British Airway, Royal Ascot, Mandarin Oriental Hotels, The Sunday Times, Gore-Tex and Shop Magazine.
