OFFF Festival Barcelona 2014: Beyond The Stages

At OFFF Barcelona 2014, we also found some interesting stuff beyond the stages, take for instance  The Folio Club, the Barcelona-based platform aimed at promoting and producing independent editorial projects. They also provide offset-digital printing services. We talked with Ana about the print-related projects they promote, she also told us that The Folio Club helped to produce The Poool, the delightful OFFF printed magazine.

At “El Mercadillo”, a place full of exhibition stands with interesting products and services, we talked with Eddie from Camaloon, they make custom stickers and pin badges for personal or promotional use. They featured the Camaloon Be Noticed Corner where attendants to the Festival could draw and write anything they wanted.

Hungry Castle is a creative studio based in Barcelona. They make public art “for Planet Earth” and have a fashion brand called Cool Shit.  LaserCat, the impressive giant cat installation that closed the OFFF Festival, was co-created by them with ADC.

We met Xavi from Pinhole, they make 100% hand made photographs, taken by pinhole cameras, just a box with a little hole, no lens. Each photo they make is individually developed, using old manual chemical methods. At the Festival they had a visually stunning stand.

A bold statement in the Pinhole stand.

We also visited the Alive Animals stand, they make t-shirts with animal illustrations and have developed a mobile app to bring them to life, using interactive augmented reality. They are now raising funds on Kickstarter

Thanks, OFFF Festival and … “fins l’any que ve” !
