OFFF Festival 2014 – Day 2

Here are our highlights from the OFFF Barcelona 2014 second day.

An hyper crowded Open Room Stage opened with the finish creative agency Kokoro & Moi. They showed us their imaginative approach to give their clients ad-hoc design solutions, regardless of being digital or print. They also proposed some challenging equations like “Openness + Randomness =3” or “People + People =3”, meaning the importance of working  collaboratively and with no preconceptions.

OFFF Festival 2014 – Day 1

OFFF Festival 2014 started with all the features one may expect from a Barcelona’s Festival: relax, sun and creativity. The hippest design fest in the city begun with high expectations not only about their speakers, all of them internationally renowned professionals, but also about the cool audience and the fun that everyone expected to have.

The first achieved mark was The Poool magazine, a beautiful present we received before the doors opened. It was as good as anticipated. Risky and delicate, no ads inside, it is a delightful visual experience. During the fair we talked with The Folio Club, the company in charge of this work, and they were very proud about it: we’ll talk about that in a separate post.
