TRAVEL  |  Spending three weeks working in Barcelona, included the OFFF festival is a good way to spend the month of May. The OFFF festival has given a lot of inspiration by watching good work from great speakers. OFFF is an entity in continuous transformation, alive and evolutionary. More than a decade ago, it was born as a post-digital culture festival; a meeting place to host contemporary creation through an in depth programme of conferences, workshops and performances by the most relevant artists of our time. These days, OFFF keeps being a reference event throughout the world. A festival hosted in Barcelona, New York, Lisbon and Paris which has featured renowned artists such as Joshua Davis, Stefan Sagmeister, John Maeda, Neville Brody, Chris Milk, Paula Scher, Rick Poynor, Erik Spiekermann, Dvein, Erik Natzke, Vincent Moon, among others…The festival where a new generation of artists has originated and developed. All of them started attending OFFF as spectators. Today, they take up its main stage.

Being in Barcelona with its outstanding architecture, colours, graphics, decor, food, beach, shops and coffee at Cafés el Magnifico is highly recommended.
