Inspirational Notebook: The Blog
I’m glad to announce that the Evernote notebook where I posted all kinds of inspirational stuff has become a blog!
I felt it wasn’t enough organized and that it didn’t show the images in a beautiful way, so I decided to move those pictures into a tumblr.
As always, I’ve classified the images into categories. The main page shows all of them merged, but you’ll find a useful bar at the bottom with the usual categories, just click one and the desired images will appear
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do :)

Inspirational Notebook: The Blog

I’m glad to announce that the Evernote notebook where I posted all kinds of inspirational stuff has become a blog!

I felt it wasn’t enough organized and that it didn’t show the images in a beautiful way, so I decided to move those pictures into a tumblr.

As always, I’ve classified the images into categories. The main page shows all of them merged, but you’ll find a useful bar at the bottom with the usual categories, just click one and the desired images will appear

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do :)


Vintage Web Design
I have finished one another of my requests. This one is a webpage design required by a client who sells her handmade products.
Being handmade items, I decided to use pastel tones and a vintage theme to transmit a feeling of warmness, coziness and approach to the customer.
This is reinforced by the index page description, which is addressed as a letter to the newly arrived customer. It describes the products, the navigation and buying process, welcoming the customer personally and closely.
The distribution is really simple as the client didn’t want or need any other sections: The main page, where we can find a description and a menu bar, which will lead us to the image galleries of her products, and an about me page.

He acabado otro de mis pedidos. Este se trata de un diseño para una pagina web de una cliente que vende sus productos hechos a mano.
Al tratarse de manualidades, decidí utilizar tonos pastel y una tematica vintage para transmitir calidez y proximidad al usuario.
Ese sentimiento de cercanía se ve reforzado mediante la descripción que encontramos en la página principal, la cual ha sido diseñada a modo de carta personal dirigida al visitante de la página. En esta se describen los productos, el funcionamiento de la página y el modo de compra, dándole la bienvenida al cliente.
La distribución es muy simple debido a que la cliente no no quería ni necesitaba mas elementos: Se basa en una página principal descriptiva, y un menú superior que nos lleva hacia las galerías con los productos.

Moon Perigee
Today the moon will be on it’s perigee. In other words, today is the day of the year when the moon will be closest to the Earth. 
I hope to take a few nice shots of it, now that I finally have a decent digital camera. (Yes, I know, even though I love analogue, I must accept it would be very difficult to catch something nice on film.)
Go! Look through the window for a while, I’m sure it’s worth it

Hoy la luna esta en su perigeo. En otras palabras, hoy es el día del año en el que la luna estará más cerca de la Tierra.
Espero poder captar algunas imágenes bonitas de ella, ahora que por fin tengo una cámara digital decente. (Si, por mucho que adore el analógico, debo aceptar que me costaría lo suyo sacar algo decente con carrete.)
Así que ya sabéis! Salid un poquito, mirad por la ventana, seguro que vale la pena.

Design: El forn de Ca l’Antich.

This is my latest design work. It’s a business card for a natural artisan bakery.

A yellowish-orange color has been used to summon the feeling and smell of warm bread, together with round typography, for it to feel sweet soft and spongy.

The business doesn’t own a shop, but receive orders from their costumers, so they bring you freshly baked bread at your door.

They also attend to an ecological market to sell their goods, this market takes place every saturday in different cities: Sant Quirze, Cerdanyola, Barberà and Rubi. 

Check out the market’s web in order to know more about when and where: mercatecologicdelvalles.cat

Este es mi ultimo trabajo de diseño, se trata de una tarjeta de visita para una empresa de panaderos que realiza pan natural y artesano.

Se ha utilizado un color amarillo anaranjado para recordar la calidez y el olor del pan recién hecho, así como una tipografía redondeada para aportar el sentimiento de formas tiernas y esponjosas.

Este negocio no posee una tienda; reciben encargos, y los llevan a sus clientes, de manera que estos reciben el pan recién hecho a las puertas de sus casas.

También atienden a un mercado ecológico para vender sus bienes, el cual se celebra cada sábado en diferentes ciudades de forma cíclica: El primer sábado del mes acuden a Sant Quirze, el segundo a Cerdanyola, el tercero a Barberà y el ultimo a Rubí.

Spain’s Secret Conflict

This video is about the unspoken conflict between Catalonia and Spain. It starts with the fact that Catalonia wishes it’s independence from Spain. Then it tries to explain why and where it all started, and identifies the roots of the politic, national and cultural conflict between both.

I recommend watching it. It is in english, with english subtitles on the spanish and catalan spoken parts. If you are interested in Catalonia or Spain, or you already know about this situation but have never understood it, watch it.

I’m catalan. I have grown in Catalonia, I’ve learned Catalan, and for me it’s my mother tongue. I have grown fond of catalan traditions, and I identify my home in this lands.
But I don’t feel spanish, as I haven’t grown in a spanish environment, as I don’t feel identified with it’s national icons nor with it’s language.
I have learned spanish through my education as I have learned english. I can speak both, and I can’t identify spanish as my mother tongue the same way I can’t identify english, even tough I can speak fluently.
Our history is different, we come from different countries, from different roots, we remained historically separated for centuries, until Spain invaded Catalonia, and it became a part of Spain, loosing it’s identity as an independent country, but not it’s nationality. Even when different regimes of Spain have tried hard to erase our national feeling, it has persisted.

So why is it so wrong for us to wish to recover our status as an independent country? Why can’t we be one? We have our own language, we have our own traditions, we have our own historical past, and we even have our own historic political institutions. 

That doesn’t mean we won’t accept spanish people anymore. Can’t you travel and live in London although you’re spanish or american or whatever? You can, you just have to integrate in that country’s culture, but that doesn’t mean you have to loose yours, just accept the other and embrace it.

So that’s how we want it to be. Me, and the people who have the same catalan national feeling.


I decided what I wanted to study when I saw these. I was, astonished.

Decidí que quería estudiar cuando vi esta escena. Me quede totalmente impresionada.
