This post is written by Visualaddicted AKA Mattia Bernini, a designer/photographer based in London studying at London College of Communication, with a few freelancing experience for international clients. His works have been chosen to be published in this year Official Offf festival book. Because of that he’s currently in Barcelona attending the festival. At the end of every day he’ll write a post for us about his experiences.
Third and final day at offf festival have been as inspiring and trilling as the previous one with a touch of melancholy typical of something amazing which is about to come to an end. The day have focused mainly on traditional graphic design unlike previous day where interaction design and moving image took over the stage.
The audience have been warmly awakened from Barcelona’s nightlife by the innocent and humble works of Daniel Eatock– a clever Scottish artist able through playful combination of forms, shape, names and language to infuse poetry into images. His medium of choice is photography with which he greatly represent the collision between language and form.
Next on the stage is Mario Lombardo, a sparkling design studio based in Berlin producing work related to fashion, tv, editorial, museum and much more. The approach of this incredibly modest guy to design is based on an handcrafted tailoring of mixed media for the Germany’s vibrant audience.
Attention must be drawn to the inspiring and stimulating talk given by the American developer, artist, photographer, philosopher and poet Jonathan Harris. Talk that centered on a search of himself and meanings for his life through different solitary journeys around USA’s territories. Incredible importance was given to the unique interpretation of different signs that lead to the creation of poetry consequentially read to the audience while a series of images was shown. Truly inspiring!
Final talk have been a fascinating insight behind the creation and evolution of the Behance platform, the most important platform worldwide where artists can share, promote and get hired. From beginning to end Matias Corea have inspired the audience with tips and guide lines on how to survive amongst competition and achieve the goals that you set yourself.
