At OTOM we like Autumn, the process after which something new comes and the conventional changes colour. For adults it is usually something normal, but once a little girl taught us how surprising it is to discover for the first time the colour change of the leaves in Autumn.

OTOM is a Creative Design Studio for great little people, where we want to play freely, to dream, to imagine, to feel, to be and let it be, and over all, never stop discovering the world as if it were the first time.
This is the main essence of OTOM and of who we are.
¡Hi! my name is Ana and I'm a punctilious person, no matter in which task I’m involved in.
Self-demanding, perfectionist, visual and intuitive.
Since I can remember I visualize myself always 'hands on' creation. Constantly researching and experimenting possibilities of expression, techniques and materials. Be it sculpture, graphic design, jewelry, ... I need to be permanently active in any project, whether professional or personal.
The last years of my life, besides developed some projects as a freelance graphic designer, I have been educator, player and apprentice. I mean nanny. A period of three years which has given me the not easy but extraordinary and unique experience of accompanying the growth and education to a magnificent great little girl. I have had the oportunity to learn how rediscover everyday things as if it were the first time.
Now, I try to give visual life to Jonathan's lies.
Hi, my name is Jonathan and I'm a liar.
Since I was a child I liked to tell lies because, while there is only one truth, there are as many lies as you can imagine.
At university I studied the art of lying to sell but, fortunately for my conscience, I never got to practice what I learned.
I did several jobs but life takes many turns and I ended up dizzy, in a foreign country and making sandwiches.
I spent three years lying to myself until I decided to tell myself a different lie, a lie in which I would be happy doing the best thing I know how to do: tell lies.
And what a better lie than a story? A lie that satisfies both the liar and the lied. A lie that entertains and can even teach values to the little ones and not so little ones.
So I introduce myself again: Hello, my name is Jonathan and I am the storyteller.
