"We value the experimentation, the reformation of the message, and the smart incentives.

We believe in the atypical, and in the principle that says that form follows function.

We celebrate clear messages and intelligent contents.

We are an Independent Design Studio.” — Manifiesto Futura

BRUTO

image

"Wallpaper* magazine invited us to collaborate in a project that would be exposed during design week in Milan. The task was to create 5 food items that were focused around one particular ingredient, also the branding and packaging.

We worked with Alfredo Villanueva, choosing “chili” as our main ingredient, so we could stand out our culture bringing the name of “Mexico” to an international exhibition not only by design but also by it’s gastronomy.

In a world where everything screams, everything is flashy, BRUTO remains an outsider, confirming that what is well made can get along with simplicity. What is startling is not necessarily noisy.”

MUTUO

image

"Mutuo, two architects proposing solutions that represent an ode to the experimentation. Taking advantage of their different roots, they create new experiences through chaos.

This project allowed us to came out with a particular solution: An identity with no logo, that relies in other resources to accomplish the characteristics of recognition and constancy that branding requires.”

Banner Year

"Pieces created for my ‘Banner Year’ solo show at Why Lou Two in Louisville, Kentucky. The collection featured 8 handcrafted banners.

I designed 8 simple quotes that served as part motivation, part fun. The canvas was prepared and handed over to sign painter extraordinaire Kirby Stafford, to paint the designs. Couldn’t be happier with how they turned out.”

"For British illustrator and print designer Abbey Watkins, drawing has always been the primary form of expression. Her work is grounded in realism created in graphite, but pulls on the strings of surrealism with it’s mix of human, animal and spiritual worlds. From her studies in Textile Design for Fashion, where she achieved first class honours in 2011, Abbey developed her work from functional illustrations to a more uncertain and personal place, often drawing on mythology and archetypal themes. The fight between the conscious and the subconscious is boiling beneath the surface of her most recent work. Where her print designs are concerned, a language between the pencil and the digital world has been developed to create both simple and elaborate pieces.”

Confuse the Spirit

"The illustrations were inspired by the myths and legends of  Native American culture; confusing the bad spirits by not being able to pin point the body to infiltrate the mind. I was also inspired by their use of peyote and transcendent spiritual visions. "
