After beginning her professional career as an art director for a variety of audiovisual projects, Ekhiñe worked as a graphic designer at the Twopoints.net, De Designpolitie, What Design Can Do and Thonik studios, as well as collaborating with agencies such as Vruchtvlees, before becoming a co-founder of What The studio. Ekhiñe is a multidisciplinary designer with a conceptual approach whose work focuses on communication design. Through a process which greatly values research, Ekhiñe's work concentrates on the development of robust visual systems, experimentation with typography and the creation of visual languages with immense communicative power.
