Oficina de disseny are Ariadna Serrahima, Diego Bustamante and Katharina Hetzeneder — a graphic design studio founded in Barcelona in autumn 2014. We make books and publications, visual identities, posters, music releases, websites and exhibitions, teach classes and are involved in various research-based projects.

The current social and political context determines our way of doing and thinking. Content matters, as do collective design processes with our clients, collaborators and the people around us who enrich our work. The design process goes hand in hand with the production at our printing workshop L’Automàtica, where we work and experiment with letterpress and offset. Printing and communicating content shapes our everyday practice.

Cassettes of a collection released by Paralaxe Editions with music by Broshuda, (Ooze Vector), and Takahiro Mukai, (Sand Container).
