AUTHOR PROGRAMME  

We are happy to present the SÂLMON< AUTHOR PROGRAMME. This year we have commissioned the artist FITO CONESA and again LA TECLA STUDIO to come together to think about how it would be the image of SÂLMON <19 and this website. That's how the planets, universes and spatio-temporal fantasies of Fito have passed through the graphic hands of TECLA and will accompany us during this 7th edition of the festival. A festival that mutates as much as its image to promote ubiquity, experimentation, discovery and adventure.

LA TECLA STUDIO

We are not a studio, we are part of what happens Barcelona’s streets. We do not realize graphic communication, our natural perception of the world is pure graphic design: we eat typographies, we breathe signage and we dream in iconic codes. We no longer believe in the simplicity and naturalness of things, everything is easy and simply natural without having to believe in it. Offer visual solutions is not an option for us, we visualize questions that graphically open the world to new designs and ideas that make it more contemporary, less and less conceptual by intuitive and extremely emotional. We are the key to everyday reality and all of its radical neighborhood art. We are the key of the board that designs upcoming graphic universes with one main ingredient, the simplicity of effectiveness. But above all, our priority is not to compete with other people, our ambition is to get to know you, to continue thinking for you, to co-design a world that invites you to live less graphically... to even let the design apart and to breathe and enjoy the non-graphic design of things... until someone press the key again.
