- Please introduce yourself in a few words, tell us who you are and where you come from. How and why did you become a graphic designer?
I’m Eduardo and I’m from Spain. I’ve always been interested in all creative endeavours. As I was good at drawing, I focused my studies towards design from a very early age.
- How did you conceive your design “Making a mark” and how did you get the idea? What inspired you and what is the story behind it?
I’ve always been fascinated by Zen gardens. In fact, I’ve already created a design based on them which has a touch of humour about it.
We use our fingerprints like minute trademarks that represent us – I liked the parallels with Zen gardens where a monk makes his own trademark on another scale. It’s amazing that something which could easily go unnoticed is connected to something big and spectacular.
- Do you practice the Zen attitude yourself?
Sometimes. For example, I try to be Zen-like when I’m waiting in the supermarket and someone jumps the queue.
- What do you do to stay Zen in life? Any tips?
When I’m sitting on the sofa with Gara, my little dog, I turn into a Buddha who’s achieved inner enlightenment and peace.
- How long have you known laFraise and how did you find us?
Around four or five years ago. I used to read a Spanish blog about T-shirts and other things and it mentioned the shop being one of the best in the world and the best in Europe. I love design, so I looked around the blog and still enjoy doing so today.
- If you would recommend us, what would you say?
I would say that the shop has the best products out there, as its T-shirts are the result of designers fighting it out! It also values humour and more artistic, daring designs.
- Do you have hobbies other than drawing? What are they?
I love writing short stories, but I’m just an amateur.
- What are your expectations for this year?
I’ve just recently moved to a new city (Barcelona) so my list is all about getting to know the city better, learning languages like Catalan, the language that’s spoken around here, and, of course, seeing more of my designs on laFraise, hahaha.
- Could you please draw us your interpretation of strawberries with Chantilly cream? Thanks for the interview and the drawing!
Of course and thanks for the opportunity of participate in this community.
