The exhibition, BCNMCR, launched last year, showing work from five studios including Hey, Mucho and LoSiento.
For the 2014 event, the number of participants has increased to 11, with designers and consultancies including Laura Meseguer, Forma & Co, Brosmind and Berto Martinez showing their work.
‘Last year’s event surpassed all expectations’, says Sedgwick.
‘The incredible contributions of the studios left us with some great memories and this year’s line-up of inspirational visitors, drawn from the centre of Barcelona’s graphic design, typography, illustration and branding industry, will offer us further insights into the minds of some of the world’s most forward-thinking creatives’.
As well as showing work, the exhibition will also host a series of talks on the opening night, aiming to explore the design approaches of Barcelona-based designers.
Among the works on show are this retina-wrenching acid house-leaning piece by Alex Trochut:
