Coffee with Adrià Sánchez

On May 8th we had a coffee with Adrià Sánchez, Chief Design Officer of Wallapop. The conference, titled Wallapop: Chronicles of a Designer, has dealt with the trajectory of Wallapop. The success of the application has made him suddenly seen with the situation of designing screens that receive 20 million visits a day.

Adrià is from Barcelona, a bar-tracted to absurd ideas and leads the design department of Wallapop. Formed in Elisava, he previously worked in bars and design studios such as Zulinema. He spent a period of time working in agencies, but basically his work was focused on freelances of design and projects of his own. It was then when he began to make his own apps as in the case of “To Beer”, a personal project to find beer around you that failed. Finally, his next project was Wallapop.
