Javier Mariscal believes in scrawling with the hand rather than using computer tools

While in Barcelona, I met Javier Mariscal, the Spanish artist and designer in his design offices in an area called 22@Barcelona. This is where design companies have their offices in Barcelona.

Mariscal's work has spanned a wide range of mediums, ranging from painting and sculpture to interior design and landscaping. He speaks like his design. With a few words and a stroke of his hand he slows things down and makes everyone around him very relaxed.

While designing he likes to scrawl and belives that a scrawl with a hand is far more expressive than using any digital tool. He team uses computers for his production work. But he does not use them in the design stage.

It was a reinforcement of my product design lessons, when my professors asked me to draw first rather than write or use a computer program to start your design process.
