diestro is a creative studio founded in 2010 in Barcelona as a result of the collaboration between the illustrator and art director David Fernández and the motion graphics artist Hugo Basism. Together with the executive and creative director Lucas Elliot they form the creative core of the studio. All three have more than thirty years of international experience in R & D and production of audiovisual design.

diestro builds visual languages ​​through the combination of mixed and experimental techniques of illustration, animation, CGI and live action. Its natural territories are advertising, corporate audiovisual identity, TV branding, titles and film credits, visuals for events and direct, mapping shows, visuals and cinematics for videogames. They always give priority to research and experimentation to provide innovative solutions with high visual impact that allow to connect with audiences on different platforms.
