What is

Foliosofy

The name comes from two words: portfolio and philosophy.

History

It all began in the first decade of the second millennium. ln 2009, while I was still in high school in Pontevedra, Spain, hungry to prove myself I could get paid for doing what I love, I had my first chance to work as a freelance for a client across the Atlantic.

A year later, in Madrid, I wanted to have my own company, so I founded Freelanceritis, a somewhat playful name which reflected the point to which I was committed to my work. A few weeks after finishing my business plan, with a bit of home-made advertising, I landed my first client, whom I worked with for over a year.

ln 2014, once I got my diploma in 3D animation in Belgium, I was ready to officialise my services. So, the first version of Foliosofy was born. The name comes from two words: portfolio and philosophy. The aim was to create a portfolio of my work while at the same time sharing ideas, discoveries and lessons around my other passions: philosophy and science. I also wanted to help fellow artists to improve their portfolios by sharing with them what I’ve learnt along the way.

Several versions later and with a growing team, Foliosofy still has these goals at its core, along with helping businesses grow by providing creative digital services.

Our

purpose

At the top

We provide creative digital services with the objective of improving and growing businesses by reaching and acquiring targeted customers who constantly engage with a brand. These creative services include many forms of graphic design, digital marketing, web and app development.

AT the surface

The skills required to help other businesses achieve these goals in this manner are the same skills that our team at Foliosofy have developed in order to reach their own professional goals. At Foliosofy, we aspire to do work that can change the world by helping entrepreneurs achieve their aspirations and, while doing so, achieve our own.

At its root

It would be hard to fully understand the purpose of Foliosofy without mentioning two things: Eudaimonia and my novel. The first is a concept I learned from the 67 Steps. Eudaimonia is, in theory, the best possible way to experience life; it’s about harmonising the elements that enable the fulfilment one’s purpose. Secondly, my novel is a project I have been working on since I was 13, when I decided I wanted to be a comic book artist as an adult.

Both work together as follows: my novel is about a hero who saves himself by forgiving himself understanding the world he lives in. My dream is to share this story with the world, using the same set of skills that I use to help other people achieve their own.
