We Think
Then Design

At Toormix we like to think first and to design later, since we conceive design as something more than a simple aesthetic value. The initial phase of a project is fundamental to establish a strategy and to form innovative visual approaches later. We specialize in Branding, Art Direction and Graphic Design applied to digital and printed format. We work in all kinds of projects where our experience can add value, helping our clients to be more notorious and unique.
We like to create an ambience of professional trust and respect for our clients while working in a demanding way and in accordance with new developments. This allows us to deliver new solutions to the companies through creative thinking, design and communication.
Since 2012 we put some of our time in our atelier, a parallel space to our office created with the objective of stimulating development of new processes, helping creative, formal, and thinking research, and definitely a place where we can stablish new work methods with our clients. A lab of ideas where we can learn, grow professionally and enrich future projects.

Created in 2000 at Barcelona by Ferran Mitjans and Oriol Armengou, Toormix is a design studio focused on ideas and with a clear calling for innovation and networking. We create for national and international clients whether big or small. Our portfolio, the conferencies and workshops that we are invited to perform at different countries, as our teaching task at several design schools, endorses our professional career. Also, some of our works have been published in several magazines, and we have participated in various exhibits.

  • Design is Future
    congresstival

    Design is Future congresstival is a new event created by toormix and BCD (Barcelona Centre de Disseny) in Barcelona for the Barcelona Design Week 2015 and 2016 editions. Design is Future is an event that explores new approaches in design from the perspective of the profession, business and society with a format that mixes the concept of congress and festival.

    Design is Future is a meeting place for companies, organisations and professionals which will share success stories and new design trends and methodologies that are shaping the future. A journey that spans three major thematic areas viewing the design from three specific points of view: profession, business and society. All illustrated through case studies and experiences of interest from around the world. Examples of new design professionals certifying the usefulness of design to revitalize and make businesses grow and finally the design from the standpoint of how of how to improve life for people and society. The format seeks to find a creative system that allows to illustrate all the content in an original and dynamic way facilitates the tools to illustrate a high level professional connection and in general creates an innovative experience.
