Convex is an editorial publication centered around the world of drugs. This publication is characterized by the approach and perspective from which it communicates content; always treating tabu subjects with absolute transparency. Each publication addresses a different drug and presents information openly and without judgement. Convex’s aim is to develop a bold graphic treatment that will trigger an emotional response from its readers and invite them to reflect on the consumption of drugs and its negative effects.
In addition to the series of publications, a series of graphic material for «En la nada» workshops has been conceptualized and executed. These workshops also treat the subject with an informative yet reflective tone like the publications.
Unplugged is a series of weekend retreats where analog and creativity-inducing activities take place. The Unplugged community strongly believes that in a digitally powered world, analog breaks are absolutely necessary and essential to our well-being as humans.
Taking this in consideration, the main objective for this project was to write a ten point manifesto for Unplugged and, subsequently, design a series of publications that thoroughly illustrate and communicate these statements.
Since manifestos are known to be a strong call to action, it was fundamental to incorporate interaction in the conception of the design in order to provide a platform for a potential response or intervention. Furthermore, it was key to directly come in contact with these analog approaches and transmit them daringly and inventively through a potent graphic design treatment.
“Duedate” is the end of year project by Paula Lavergne tutored by Diego Fernández and consist of an application which connects users and supermarkets in order to avoid massive food waste.

On September 9, 10 and 12, a total of 19 Final Projects of the Master in Graphic Design were presented in front of the evaluating commission constituted by Xavier Alamany, Raimon Botey, Anna Fuster, Lluc Massaguer, Carles Murillo and Núria Vila.
In the current edition, presentations were held in the Cultural Space EINA Barra de Ferro, where also took place an exhibition with all the works.
Women’s literature has its own universe and, beyond the discrimination that women often suffer in several areas of their life, many woman writers have worked to win universal consideration. For this reason, this project aims to show and bring the literature made by women to an audience interested in both literature and editorial design.
In this project can be appreciated a compilation of 8 writers from the late nineteenth century who were forced to change their feminine identity into masculine. These writers, for being able to publish their work, they had to signed with a male pseudonym, and consequently, they were known by this name.
