Graphic Design in Valencia

Tags: ,


In Valencia, Spain. On a little alley off a side street near the city center. In an area buried under construction and renovation.

I’m sitting at a cardboard table in a cardboard chair (with arm rests, no less).


There are those Pantone mugs on a table in the corner. Adobe pillows hanging above the cash register. Neon-colored, deflated balloons wrapped around the bar stools. A book called Free Font Index sits on a shelf over the staircase.

Polaroids are clipped to the bar. A giant Taschen poster hangs on a lone wall. Nellie McKay remixes play on the radio.

This is very obviously a place I’m supposed to be. Spain. Valencia. Abroad.


While traveling I didn’t exactly expect to stumble into a coffee shop that triples as a café, studio & bookstore. Nor did I expect to find traces of graphic design and/or designers so easily in cities I never expected to visit. Graphic design is everywhere.


Inspiration is everywhere.
