"Count Macula", talk by Lluís Serra (Senyor Estudi)

  • 09/01/2018
  • 11.30 am
  • EINA Conference Hall
  • Open to the public

Through the Graphic Arts subject on the Bachelor’s Degree in Design, led by Xaver Alamany and Enric Garrido, and the Graphic Production subject on the Master’s Degree in Graphic Design, with Lluc Massaguer, the talk on "Count Macula" will be given by Lluís Serra, from Senyor Estudi, where he will speak of some of his projects where the choice of support, the printing system or the manipulation and other technical aspects have contributed an added value or have even become their conceptual basis.

Lluís Serra studied graphic design at EINA and, together with Mireia Sais, an industrial engineer, he founded Senyor Estudi, a small interdisciplinary and graphic design workshop. The search for simple solutions, bespoke solutions and love of typography have led to their winning a number of LAUS and ADC*E awards.

The "igraphic" project awarded a prize at the 19th European Newspaper Awards

The igraphic infographic project, by Paula Terra and Núria Jané, fourth-year students on the Bachelor’s Degree in Design, has been awarded a prize in the 19th European Newspaper Awards in the Infographics Online category.

The awards will be presented at the European Newspaper Congress, which will be held in Vienna from 13 to 15 May 2018.

igraphic is a cross-disciplinary infography project developed by planning a new publication model. It contains infographics adapted to different formats, both digital and paper. The design of the various elements aims to differentiate them and innovate compared with usual publications, presenting the contents visually and dynamically. The project includes the design of a brand identity that arises from the ‘igraphic’ naming, a name that refers to the connotations of the ‘i’ prefix that the name itself presents, based on which a number of pieces have been developed.

Behind the Curtain: reinterpretation of the Liceu 2017-2018 opera season

Students on the Infography subject in the 4th year of the Bachelor’s Degree in Design, with Jordi Català, are reinterpreting the posters of the operas in the Gran Teatre del Liceu 2017-2018 season, adding and integrating elements of services for each one in the “Behind the Curtain” exhibition.

The students have developed their own version of each opera, following parameters of minimum conditions required of an infographic action: information to be conveyed, reflection, arrangement, hierarchy, synthesis and visualisation.

Visitors to the exhibition will be able to see the free and considered interpretations, in mural and audiovisual format, that the students have worked on this project.

Some fifty graphic proposals for EINA50years

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of EINA, in 1967. One of the ways to celebrate this is by showing the creative wealth of EINA and the diversity of people linked to it. This circumstance arises especially in the field of graphics, so we decided not to limit the anniversary to just one graphic identifier but, to remain faithful to the idea, ensure that different generations and years of teachers and former students at EINA are represented, inviting some fifty graphic designers with links to the school to take part in this initiative.

Between 12 June and mid-September, we will be publishing one of the proposals every day, both in this EINA blog and on social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter).

Laus Awards 2017

The Laus awards ceremony, which was organised by the Association of Graphic Designers and Art Directors of the FAD (ADG-FAD) took place last June. Among the winners we have former professors, former students and students of the Degree in Design of EINA. These are some of the winners:

The Honor Laus was given to Enric Aguilera, former professors of EINA Projects, for his "contribution and his professional career as a highest exponent of the packaging in the large use."

Josep Muñoz, recent graduate of EINA's Degree in Design, with his Final Project ‘Analitic Journal’, was given the Young Talentaward, to the best work in the student category, from which the data analysis, the value of computer graphics, and a great strategic decision as an axis of the project have been highlighted. "In a time of post-truth and the overdose of speculation, we appreciate the sobriety of design to the communication service", said the jury.

The Golden Laus was given to "Dual Magazine", by Marc Calafal and Josep Muñoz, recent graduates of EINA's Degree in Design.

Silver Laus given to Alambí, Degree's Final Prject by Judith Bosch Castro, recent graduate of EINA's Degree in Design.
