Foto.Marcelo-Lerer(2013)Marcelo Lerer: Designer & Art Director
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina 1965, and studied art and communication there as well as in Denmark. Since 1995 he has run his own company, in Barcelona and Copenhagen respectively, working with design and art directions for editorial houses, record companies, design groups, government institutions and more. His expertise includes visual communication, creative idea development and trend spotting. He has directed the two short films On Seduction and Alberto Gonzales – a bus driver from Buenos Aires.

Marcelo’s creative vision is design thinking as a totality where form and function – aesthetics, experience and meaning are integral to each other. Design can thus be an experience involving all senses and working the fibres of social and antropological  situations. For this comprehensive design vision “Social Design”.


Both and artist and graphic communicator. His artistic production is a crossover between art and design taking on formats such as books, digital collages, photography, secret tours, workshops curating exibitions and performances.

One of Lerer’s in his art work focuses has been an ongoing research into utopian dreams of harmony. In one series of work Lerer has collected secret stories and secret places of people and thus following in the footsteps of people’s secret and intimate places Lerer has created an alternative, poetic urban mapping of peripheral and, to many, unknown areas of a city.
