Archive 2004 | logo for olive oil company in Jaen, Spain

A new logotype was much needed to modernise this family-owned olive oil producer in Andalusia c.2004 in order to compete with new foreign markets. 

The project included the design of their website, stationery and packaging. Trajan typography was chosen for its elegance and to balance the iconic rendition of a juicy olive fresh from the tree. The colour palette plays with the colours used in the olive oil sector, complementing and contrasting as needed.


UX introduction course at Erretres thanks to La Nave Nodriza

This course was brilliant, now I understand why I get so impatient with some online/digital issues, it's clearly not me failing to think like a Millennium, but just some badly designed UX experiences.

Pondering... creating fruit metadata with Luis who entertained Esther & myself non-stop! 

Our group project & initial process.

Great teachers... make all the difference!


TEDxUniversidadEuropeaMadrid 2017

Co-coordinating the tedxuniversidadeuropeamadrid.com on 31st May at the Villaviciosa Campus with Chrisa Sampanes, and pleased to announce Jorge Mañes Rubio (a Ted Fellow) will be one of our speakers. 

This year's theme antidisciplinary is beyond the multidisciplinary, where maximum innovation is possible. Working as a team, not as a simple sum of specific individual knowledge, but with a mutual contamination as a result of not being confined within specific disciplines, this is currently the drive behind cutting edge companies and technological innovations –a new society based on collective intelligence.
