"I'm a type designer based in Barcelona. You can have a look at my Typerepublic type foundry in order to see some retail & published type work. In fact, if you are looking for Spanish typography, then... That is the place! I am also involved in multi-script typefaces. One of my designs is Al-Andalus, an Arabic script intended for literature purposes. Yes, it was quite a long process of work and was part of my PhD research on Spanish Arabic typography."

Carles Murillo is a graphic designer, art director and illustrator specialised in the independent cultural sector who lives and works in Barcelona. He has been the project manager and chief designer at Bisdixit Barcelona headquarters for 13 years, where he was awarded several times in the Laus Awards, Daniel Gil awards (Visual), the Art Directors Club of New York, the Tokyo Type Director's Club and ADCE.

He likes ideas, intelligent solutions, the work culture, the desktop publishing, marginal things, paper, and doing things with absolute passion and dedication, but he does not like,among others, the star system, or the mainstream, class differences, politicians, or the "official versions".


Coffee with... is a chat session within EINA's Master in Graphic Design, in which, from different professionals' insight, different topics related to graphic design are discussed. These sessions are held once a month, of 1 hour of duration. Open to the public.

Direct Contact with Industrialists from the Graphic Arts Course

In the Graphic Arts course, of the third year of the Degree in Design, given by Anna Majó and Lluc Massaguer, the contact between students and the industrialists as professionals is highly valued. It is necessary to visit print shops, book makers, and paper manufacturers to understand the graphic production process. This way you can see how things are done first-hand and be aware of the key factors to guarantee the quality of the graphic elements from the design.

Therefore, the students of this course have visited Winihard offset printshop, the rotative CREA, Esenbook, bookbinders, large format print shop Essapunt, and Antalis paper makers.
