How would you introduce yourself?
We are a graphic design and illustration studio founded in 2007 and based in Barcelona. We enjoy working closely with our clients, big or small projects. Our style is defined by geometry, colour, typography and bold graphics. This is a mark which we also carry over into our personal projects.
When did you realise you wanted to be a designer/illustrator?
We are a team of 5 people: four Designers and the Studio Manager. Each of us has a special skill, but we are all connected by the same interests.
Who have you looked to as inspiration throughout your career – how has this influenced your work?
Modernist for sure, where “Function should always dictate form”. It will never die.
Tell us the concept and inspiration behind your designs for Strut and Fibre? Your hero or inspiration.
The idea is to pay a tribute to the geometry and to the geometric abstract art. A genre that was popularized by avant garde artists in the early twentieth century. Form and colours with countless readings and interpretations. Names like Kandinsky, Malevich or Mondrian are some of the pioneer abstractionists and big heroes of inspiration. Combining and playing with shapes, colours and stripes.
What do you see as the power of print?
Print is sensations in a lot of different ways. It can complement and reinforce the design.
Describe your typical working day?
We spend a lot of time creating and designing during the day, so we think it is important to keep your mind curious and active all time. To do nice things not directly related to the profession and to have directs sources of inspiration, like other forms of arts.
What advice would you offer an aspiring creative?
Never stop learning. The day you think you know everything is your last day as a designer.
What’s been your favourite project you’ve worked on recently?
There are lots of nice projects but maybe our favourite was working for a friend. We designed Jammy Yummy identity and labels for hand made marmalade company. We think that it is always is good to help friends with limited budget.
Why should you own a good business card?
A business card is the first contact you make with your future client, partner or friend. It is important to make a good and solid first connection, as it is said “ what counts is the first impression”.
