DESIGN FRIENDS GRAPHIC DESIGN LECTURE - Brosmind by Brosmind
The Mingarro brothers, Juan (1978) and Alejandro (1981) were born in Huesca, and spent their childhood in Binéfar, drawing comics, building vehicles for their action figures and shooting movies with his domestic camcorder. In 2006, they founded Brosmind studio and established in Barcelona. Their style is fresh and optimistic and always uses fantasy and humour. Currently they combine commercial illustration with personal projects involving multiple disciplines, such as sculpture, music or video.
EXCERPTS FROM THEIR BOOK “WHY HOW WHAT” (Norma Editorial, 2014):
If there is one sentence that perfectly defines the spirit of Brosmind it is our motto THIS IS OUR MOMENTO! When we first coined the phrase, we wanted to reflect the enthusiasm we feel for each new project and our desire to improve ourselves and face the future with optimism.
WORKING WITH A BROTHER:
The good thing about working with a brother is that you have known him all your life.
A key element in understanding our studio is the fact that its founders and owners are brothers. This brotherly bond is inseparable from the BROSMIND concept and of vital importance both to the contents we generate and to the way we work.
After several years working shoulder to shoulder, we can now say that our style is fully consolidated. Personally, we like to describe it as fresh, optimistic and with a large dose of fantasy and humour.
Interestingly, what is now known as the Brosmind style didn’t exist before the creation of the studio, but arose from the need to develop a new kind of illustration which we could both do indistinctly.
