Arauna is a graphic design studio based in Barcelona, founded in 2014 by Dani Rubio Arauna (Santander, 1986). We understand design as the development of tailor-made ideas for each project, which materialise into versatile graphic systems that adapt to all kinds of media: visual identities, publications, spaces, campaigns, and so on. We work from the global idea to the smallest detail, with special care for typography. A large part of our work explores the ways graphic design can behave in architectural spaces and environments.

We have developed projects for institutions and companies of many different sizes and areas: culture, public services, industry, fashion, music, healthcare, among others. We believe in a collaborative way of working, not only with the client, but also together with other designers, architects and creative professionals, according to each commission.

Our work has been internationally acknowledged with awards such as the Art Directors Club, D&AD or Laus. Dani Rubio Arauna is a member of Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI) since 2019.
