On February 20th we had a coffee with Carles Murillo, a former student of EINA. The title of this edition was Truths and varietés and it dealt with the role of the designer beyond the standard definition or more immediate of graphic design, as it can be the one of the designer-publisher, the designer-enabler or the designer-illustrator.

Carles Murillo is a graphic designer, art director and independent illustrator specialized in the cultural sector who lives and works in Barcelona. For 13 years he has been project manager and the leader designer of the Barcelona headquarters of Bisdixit, where he was awarded several times at the Laus Awards, the Daniel Gil Awards (Visual), the Art Directors Club of New York, the Tokyo Type Director’s Club and the ADCE.
He is, among other things, a professor at IDEP, co-creator of artzine Papermind, father of the illustrated satirical newspaper Pescao Fresco and collaborating editor, art director and graphic designer of the Colombian magazine Yuca. He believes above all in ideas, in intelligent solutions, work, in culture, in self-publishing, in the marginal, in the role and in doing things with absolute passion and dedication; Does not believe, among others, in the star-system, nor in the mainstream, nor in the class difference, nor in the politicians, nor in the “official versions.”
“Cafè amb…” is a speech cycle focused on EINA’s Master of Graphic Design where, basing on different professional points of view, some subjects related with the design field are dealt. This is a series of one hour length monthly meetings, free and open to public.
