Alberto Morales Ajubel

Alberto Morales Ajubel – Designer

I'm a painter, designer, illustrator and graphic communicator who has collaborated with national and international magazines and publishers.



I'm Ajubel, an illustrator based in Valencia, Spain, with many years experience in editorial illustration and children's and young adults’ books. Among my most notable works are 'Robinson Crusoe', a wordless graphic novel which gained 5 international awards (including the Bologna Ragazzi Award) and 'The Cat That Walked by Himself' by Rudyard Kipling, which was selected by Apple to promote the first iPad Mini in 2012.

Having worked on a number of editorial commissions, all requiring the exploration of different tools and techniques to illustrate and enrich the story, has given me the ability to completely immerse myself in the process of communicating through the visual image. I believe in reading in-between the lines of written language and telling the story in an unexpected and innovative way while still maintaining the author's perspective, voice and intention. My role is to create and conceptualize visually striking and rich illustrations that will bring your story to life and create a product we are both passionate and proud of.

I would be glad to help you materialize your project. Feel free to contact me with any questions, let's get to work!

Am not keen on star ratings as they can be crude and distorting. This isn't a primary school or an online grocer's :-). It's a place where individuals engage to make a living and that's a serious business .... so I have given 5 across the board. I was looking to get 10-12 icons to put into a text. It was difficult to express in written form (all that Reedsy allows for), just what I hoped...

If marketers designed books, they'd do it like this. I design books to get entrepreneurs, crime, and history authors printed and sold.
