Vasava, Experimenting with Design

Adobe Summit 2014 by Vasava Studio 



  The main emotion that drives Vasava is boredom. Boredom with the ordinary. The run of the mill. The “just OK.”  Vasava hate that stuff. They like to run riots with ideas, trample conventions and turn upside down what's already upside down.

  Here’s the evidence. First, their name. Type it into Google and you get the agency first. Then you get an Indian deity, also known as Indra. Vasava liked the name’s sonority – the way you can’t quite write it backwards. Some even claim that Vasava are the deities of design – but the agency is far too modest to comment.


Raw Juice - Just Blaze by Vasava Studio 



  In 1997 there were just two of them: Bruno and his dad Toni. When Enric joined a few years later, he became the third member of a dynamic trio. Hence their logo, an inverted triangle with a never-ending Escher quality: an impossible logo for a trio who thrive on the unreasonable.

  Vasava was part of a new wave of independent studios that popped up during the 1990s. They still feel squeaky new, even though they’ve grown in size and experience. In fact Vasava has become a kind of school: the Hogwarts of communications wizardry. Its “alumni” populate other well-known studios, always with a nod of thanks to the mother agency.
 

  Today, 17 people work at Vasava, and everything is done in-house. They don’t outsource. From design to illustration to video to animation, it’s all home made. And if they don’t know how to do something, they’ll teach themselves. One of Vasava’s unwritten rules is “learn like kids.” They love exploring. They love to get messy. You’ll often find them covered in ink, paint and glue.

  Their commercial success is largely due to this need to experiment, at work and at home. Their personal design and art projects have been shown in books and exhibitions around the world. They’ve spoken at events in Los Angeles and Stockholm, Beijing and Buenos Aires, and just about everywhere in between.

 Their approach has earned them the loyalty and respect of clients such as Nike, Hennessy, Adobe,etc.  They design not only for big companies, but for the sake of art and for family and friends.  But above all, they design because they can’t stop. It’s what they do. It’s who they are. For Vasava, every project is important, and every process is a playground. Any other approach would simply be too…well, boring.

Nanisk a Mixed Media Artist



  Nanisk is a columbian visual artist based in the U.S. who is 23 years old.  Her work is a combination of sequences of real and imaginary images - of the world within and outside herself.  Her process is simple: to get lost in patterns. 

  Nanisk likes to depict the female figure, memories, and enjoys working with organic materials, such as coffee, pressed flowers, and clay. She is loyal to all mediums in art, whether it is sculpture, photography, digital art, or drawing. She often finds herself using all, and as you may notice, most of her pieces are mixed media or collage for this reason.

  The following images are from her work-in-process series: Phantasmagoria and Eden. Phantasmagoria is a mythology of female expressions (4 images). Eden is a narrative of ironical woe based on the theme of futile love (3 images).

Lucas González, Modifying Designs

CAWA by Lucas González



  CAWA is a water jar conceived under a new perspective. It’s an object that answers two simple questions. Why do we serve as we serve? Why are pitchers the way they are?  Traditionally pitchers were made to transport water up and down, and this defined the shape they had. Nowadays, pitchers have their own place in homes, and this may change things.

  Since the function of the pitcher is no longer to transport, a revision of the object is perfectly possible. Taking the concept of gesture as the leitmotif of Lucas' project he developed a pitcher in which pouring water is reduced to a simple movement of the arm, making the act of serving more gentle and effortless for everyone. Since the way we use it has changed, so will its shape. This enabled Lucas to do a new aesthetic approach to the object.
 
  The result is a very simple but functional object that provides the user a new experience when serving water.
