My name is Nuria Navas, I’m from Barcelona, Spain with over 15 years’ experience in the UK. My area of expertise lies in print, web, motion and digital design. Throughout my career I’ve developed a rich array of skills and a keen eye for detail. My work enables me to channel my passion for art and design into creative direction, conceptual development, corporate identity, marketing campaigns, presentations, project management, illustration, infographics and motion graphics.
Firstly, I want to thank you for visiting my portfolio. As you can guess, I’m a professional graphic designer and illustrator.
But how did I get to where I am today?
Well, art has always fascinated me. Growing up in Barcelona gave me a good start as art is everywhere.
At age 19 I wanted to travel and learn English so I packed my bags and headed to the UK to pursue my passion for British music. Something captivated me about the UK, and 18 years later I’m still here and still loving the music.
Now, London hasn’t always been my home. In fact, I’ve been all over the UK – Maidenhead, Reading, Wales and then Chester where my career in graphic design began.
I’ve met some truly inspiring people along the way who have taught me a lot. Success takes a lot of hard work and determination, and I’m very passionate about what I do but I always tell myself that I can do better. The bottom line is: I’ll do whatever it takes to further my career.
No challenge is too great and so I put my heart and soul into every project. I’m a natural communicator and I’ll always go above and beyond to meet the needs of my clients. Most of all I believe in my ability. It’s this belief that has got me where I am today.
However, while I work hard, I remember that life’s for living and so I make sure I do just that. I love to travel and meet new people from all kinds of backgrounds and cultures. These experiences have fuelled my creativity and have broadened my horizons.
Finally, at the end of the day when all is said and done, there is always the music. It’s the life force which keeps me going. Well, that and playing the bass guitar, singing, painting and gymnastics. For me, there is nothing better than risking your life by attempting a backflip to forget of any troubles.
This is a little snapshot of me, but if you would like to find out more please do not hesitate to contact me.
Nuria very quickly grasped the concept and values represented in PA Accelerate and went beyond simply creating a set of visuals. Within 2 weeks we had the layouts for a complete suite of materials from interactive PDF to web layout to client facing handouts. The work was stunning and really captured our vision for the service. Well done Nuria, we'd been struggling with this for 6 months and you helped get us to a good place finally!

Nuria responded very well to what was an extremely tricky brief. Nuria's creativity, initiative and understanding was a key point in us fulfilling this task. The brilliant client feedback we received is well-deserved and reflects the quality of work delivered. The news that the client wants to use a similar format for each of the other strategy documents is the best result that could have been achieved. Thanks for all your hard work – it is much appreciated.
