During my short stay in Barcelona and already within the first day it was quite clear to me that Barcelona was a city of contrast, in more than just one aspect of the word. It’s quite the tourist place, and it has nice buildings and locations, but you don’t need to even walk into any dodgy back alley to see all the huslters walking around to trick some stupid tourists or snatch their wallet. But when the night actually comes around and you do happen to walk in the alleyways, it’s almost absurd how frequently you’ll be bombared with offers of everything from the illegal scene. From all the drugs you can imagine to completely ongoing hookers that are pretty much begging you for sex(and money).
OFFF is a anual design festival in Europe, changing locations and this year returning to Barcelona, Spain. I went down there for my first time at OFFF, but also first time in Spain – together with the designers from M&L. Although I don’t have a lot of photos from the conferences themselves from the event since I was busy paying attention to what was being said and shown, I still feel very inspired by everything I saw. New impulses, new people and new creatives to follow for future work. Being at the event and seeing what others did, I started itching to do some creative work myself.
