A professional future between strokes and comic strips
We present the story of Gonzalo Villarreal, 2nd year student of the Official Bachelor in Graphic Design, who is applying the skills acquired in the classroom in the development of two projects related to the world of comics, one of his great passions.

Gonzalo Villarreal also highlights the value of the coexistence with a large number of international students on campus, and says that “I’m taking my photography classes with a Belgian colleague, and the truth is that it conveys a different vision, another experience, which is positive, since you can also evolve in your way of expressing yourself in English”.
One of the questions most valued by the student is the possibility of carrying out activities outside the classroom, an aspect that he considers “an impulse and a motivation that fills me personally and professionally”.
The student emphasizes that, within all the fields of action of Graphic Design, his great passion is the world of comics, since “many graphic techniques can be applied coming together in a coherent way, so I think you can include many styles of graphic art that can complement each other very well,” to which he adds “the way to communicate actions in time, since in an image you can tell a story without the need for text”.
When assessing the reasons that made him choose CESINE, Gonzalo Villarreal points out that “he needed to study in a Centre where the projects were a priority, as it is a motivation to be able to work in a professional dynamic”.
The student takes stock of the skills acquired during his first two years at the University Centre and affirms that “I have greatly improved perseverance at work, and I have also learned to have more agility at work, to develop all the creativity and versatility”.
