Graphic Design & Illustration Studio / Barcelona Spain
設計師 / 西班牙,巴塞隆納
The Spanish design and illustration panorama is stronger than ever and a good proof of that are the Mingarro brothers, Juan and Alejandro, better known in the creative scene as Brosmind.
Back in 2006 they founded together this multidisciplinary studio in Barcelona to imagine, create and develop their own world of humor and good vibes. Since then Brosmind has worked with big clients such as Google, Adidas, Ray-ban and Oreo, they have done a lot of solo and group exhibitions, talking in conferences around more than twelve countries and won big prizes including a gold Cannes Lions.
They don’t seem to stop just here so we ask them few questions to learn more about Brosmind and the work they do.
西班牙的設計和全景插圖一直以來都是很強的，兄弟倆Juan Mingarro、Alejandro Mingarro非常具代表性，別名Brosmind為大家所知
R. Hello guys! how are you? busy with new projects?
B. Hi, it’s great to talk with you. We are really busy as usual, but happy as we are having the oportunity to be involved in really cool projects for awesome clients.
R. What would be a Brosmind ideal client?
B. We think that the best clients are those who know the kind of work we do in advance, and give us total creative freedom for a new project. Those are the perfect conditions for an artist to create a truly stunning piece.
R. Do you guys leave a specific time for personal projects?
B. Is a daily fight! The thing is that our main income comes from our commercial works, and then we develop our personal projects during our little spare time. There's no need to clarify that every single personal project that we achieve to finish is a really fullfilling experience.
R. What have been you most challenging project until now and why?
B. Since we are only two people at the studio, even having in mind that we produce really fast, sometimes we get overwhelmed in front of a crazy amount of work. One of the projects which was more challenging for us in that sense, was to develop a collection of 1,000 emojis for LINE App back in 2014. The schedule was really crazy, and we had to deliver 20 new finished emojis everyday during a period of 2 months. Of course at the end we made it and also had a nice time working on them. But man... those were really hard times!
R. You have works in so many different disciplines including product design, video games, toys, clothes, even one inflatable.
Is there anything you still wishing to work on?
B. During the years we've been lucky enough to work in almost all of our dream projects. Anyway, we are positive and always think that the best things are always still to come. We recently put a foot into the game industry creating the visual universe for the mobile videogame EGGGGG, and it would be great to be involved in more similar projects in the future. Also, we'd love to go more deeply into the toy industry, creating a whole line of figures, taking care not only of the designs, but also the background story. We'd love to create comicbooks telling their stories, and why not, an animated TV series based on them. Lastly, and into the field of our personal projects, we are also planning to create big format original painting on canvases. It's something we've been thinking during the years and we feel that this is the correct moment to jump into it.
R. Do you guys kept drawings from where you were child?
B. Yes. Thanks to our beloved mother, which acted like an awesome organizer and classifier, we kept most of our early works. We are talking of not only drawings, but also comics, custom toys, home movies... there's a lot of stuff there that we created together during our childhood. We usually show all this material in our talks and exhibitons, as an example of how kids interested in creativity can build a career from it, if their enviroment believes in them.
