After an auspicious start in the early days of the internet industry, helming the Financial Times Media & Telecoms online division back in the late nineties, Miguel Ripoll worked for a few years as a Creative Director in London (Intervid, EyeToEye) building ground-breaking websites for British Telecom, ITV, Arthur Andersen, MoneyWorld, and Liberty, the iconic department store. Since launching his independent studio in 2000, he has worked for major corporate clients in the Americas, Europe, and the Middle East, advising the likes of Santander Bank, the Spanish government, and many other private investment funds and companies on branding and digital transformation strategies.
A leading expert in the design and coding of interfaces for complex information systems, he has recently built multi-author publishing platforms for Yale University, Princeton University / Sciences Po Paris, Columbia University, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the American Historical Association.
Over the last twenty years, he has designed more than a hundred visually striking and technically innovative projects for top cultural institutions such as the Qatar Foundation, the University of California - Berkeley, Lund University in Sweden, Hofstra University, the University of Pennsylvania Press, Stony Brook University, Purdue University Press, the King Hassan II Fund, and the National Library of Morocco. He has also directed digital initiatives for the governments of Sweden, Iran, Syria, Libya, and Spain (where he produced the official website for Salamanca, European Capital of Culture, and consulted on web strategy for the Ministry of Defence).
His instantly recognisable visual style (which, in addition to web and print design, he has applied to several high-profile film and theatre projects, as well as to branding, packaging, and product design), has also been seen at exhibitions in leading museums like the Akademie der Künste in Berlin, the Institut du Monde Arab in Paris, the City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia, and the Cervantes Institute.
