Arauna
Studio

Arauna is a graphic design studio with a decade of experience, founded by Dani Rubio Arauna in Barcelona. We understand design as the development of an idea in accordance to each project, which translates into bespoke versatile graphic systems that adapt to all kinds of media: visual identities, publications, spaces, packaging, and so on. We work from the global idea to the smallest detail, with special care for typography.

We have developed projects for cultural institutions, public services and private companies of different sizes and areas: culture, industry, fashion, music, food and restaurants, healthcare, among others. We approach our designs in a collaborative manner, not only with the client, but also together with other professional designers, architects and communication agents, to get to the best solution for every project. Our work has been internationally acknowledged with awards such as the Art Directors Club, D&AD or Laus.
