Oliver Montiel, creative and art director based in Barcelona. In 2007, after working for different studios and agencies, he and Olmo García founded Bold, an award-winning branding studio that has worked for clients like the European Commission, Barcelona’s Contemporary Art Museum (MACBA), the City Council of Barcelona, the Government of Catalonia and Mercat de les Flors (European House Dance), among others. His passion for editorial design and packaging has helped him direct his career towards projects that focus on the final product as a piece that will increase the brand image and take it forward.

Emil Kozak is from a small town in Denmark, and was inspired to take on graphic design as a result of his life long passion for skateboarding. He began at an early age to develop his skills, inspired by skateboard-art and album covers. Growing up in Denmark, the long tradition of scandinavian functional minimalism, is inevitable and the result today is a unique artist with brilliant ideas running a studio, a clothing/surfing brand and exhibiting in art-galleries all over the world.
He is motivated by a simple goal that resonates throughout his work: ”I hope that my work can remind us that imagination can defy gravity and bend time. It is our own responsibility to enjoy every second of the day. Nobody else can do that for us. Have fun, do what you love, love what you do. We might get thrown off this spinning ball of iron and mantle tomorrow.”
He currently lives and works in Barcelona.
I'm from Vigo (Galicia) but I live in Barcelona since 2004. They say I'm a photographer, enthusiastic and stubborn. It's easy to see me around with an analog camera in my hand. My dreamlike world is as darkness and silver as my things, .
