Designer Spotlight: Victor Cantal

Another artist I’m excited to work with for the book ‘Postcards from Elsewhere’, is an old friend of mine, as our parents were close friends too. Our families have known each other for so long and and we came from the same hometown in Mindanao (Iligan).

Victor Cantal (@durianpunk) is currently based in the Netherlands with his family. His four-year-old son is aptly named ‘Miro’ with the same creative streak as his dad’s.


Victor Cantal’s art is heavily influenced by Surrealist artists such as Joan Miro, and inspired by their travels and migrations from one country to another.

Particularly excited about how Victor can translate the story cartography in map designs for the postcards.–I am absolutely impressed by his map illustrations!
