Statistics show that London graphic design is 40% more monochrome than that of our Spanish neighbours*. Perhaps it’s something to do with the extraordinary amount of sunshine and tomatoes they get compared to our abundance of concrete and chicken shops. But hey ho. Our cloudy day has been infinitely brightened by Roseta y Oihan, two Spanish graphic designers who have got editorial design down to a T. Their love for colour and eye-catching block colours are probably what’s enticing companies to hire them to design large, public displays advertising events in and around Spain. Our favourites? The pencil mountains — amazing!
