THE BRAINSTORMING PART OF THE BRAIN

From branding, to the logo and copy, to corporate gifts for your clients, through to stationery, your website, packaging and POS. We run a preliminary study to evaluate the needs of the project and then recommend the best approach and channel. Our method allows us to understand you better and get to know your brand or services more deeply in order to achieve extraordinary results.

 

Offline Services

We make cards, posters, flyers, leaflets, brochures, presentations, invitations, basically everything that has to do with ink and paper.

 

Web Design

From conception to final design. We do all the development, and subsequent additions and updates. Further, we generate content, as well as banners and images for social networks.

Mar Porgimon

After completing her Fine Arts degree and unsure of her future as an artist (not least due to the fact that she is terrible at oil painting) she tried her luck on TV as a mixer technician. As if broadcasting Mass or ‘Mira Quien Baila’ (Spain’s Strictly Come Dancing) wasn’t enough, she mixed it up with jobs retouching photos of naked women, á la soft porn.

With her eclectic CV and wanting to establish herself as a designer, she joined a distributor that, apart from developing cosmetic products and nutritional supplements, also produced and distributed products for DRTV. After 5 somewhat surreal years (“Call us now!”) and a bit fed up with her computer, she felt she needed to go back to her Fine Arts roots and create things with her hands. So, she and Carla set up Xurris & CO, a blog where they can speak their minds and make handcrafted pieces. It was OK as a hobby and an escape from their ordinary jobs, but after a while they decided to go further and turn it into their livelihoods. And so ‘Xurris & CO Creative Studio’ was born in 2015, amidst lots of excitement and hopes for the future, including getting their own interns.

Oh! She’s also the one who writes the blog and draws. If you want to get to know her more, er, formally, please check her out on Linkedin.  linkedin

Carla Ariza

After studying Fine Arts with Mar, where she experimented with aromas and food in her sculptures (mud vade retro) and pissed off hardcore animal activists at university by using colourful fish in her installations, Busquets Gruart signed her as a graphic designer (if you’ve bought a backpack or a folder of this brand in the latter part of this decade, it’s probably passed through your hands).

 

8 Years and a thousand collections later, she set up Xurris & CO with Mar, using the blog to exploit her talents with arts & crafts and develop products she likes. She also decides to enroll in a failed Masters in “Arts and Cuisine”, another one of her passions, where she ended up forming part of the Bulli foundation, alongside Ferran Adriá himself, in two shakes of a lamb tail. So amidst gastronomic liturgies, trade shows and wooden pieces, she re-evaluated her future and decided to take the blog to a professional level. She founded ‘Xurris & CO Creative Studio’ in 2015 where she hopes to continue creating and exploring the limits of art and design (assuming there are any).

 

Oh! And the colours, palettes and patterns are all her doing. And if you want to learn more about her CV click here. linkedin
