Juan Pablo García Sossa

About

Hi,

I'm Juan Pablo García Sossa.




I come from Bogotá
and live in Berlin.




I'm a Designer and I enjoy rethinking models and finding opportunities through new technologies. I translate content & information into stories that include people and are relevant to them. Stories worth telling. My work is strongly influenced and inspired by dynamics found in popular culture. I studied Design at Universidad de Los Andes Bogotá and Visual Communication at the University of The Arts UdK Berlin.

That's Juan Pablo García Sossa
