#CatalanTalk interview with the graphic designer from Can Antaviana, known for his work for the Catalan National Assembly, and viral political cartoons, card collections, and infographics
Jordi Calvís, the graphic designer from the 'Far West' of Catalonia responsible for the logo for the Catalan Way, the poster for the Concert for Freedom at Camp Nou, among many other independence-related projects, spoke with #CatalanTalk on Twitter on Tuesday.
He said that one of the most important things for capturing the essence of a project was 'empathizing' with the person who contracts you, and if you 'share fundamental ideas' the work just flows.
Calvís also talked about the "Here we say 'popes'" campaign, aimed to encouraging people from his part of Catalonia to keep using the local word for 'breasts' and not the word used in central Catalonia. Losing 'popes' would be a catastrophe, wrote Calvís, "Out here, if we lose ‘popes’, we lose everything."
