Want to go to Barcelona Design Week as our Official Booooooom Correspondent?

barcelona-design-week-2016

I’ve got a little proposition for all you designers out there. I was recently invited to Barcelona Design Week however I’m unable to attend. I was going to simply decline the offer but I thought it might be fun for one of you guys to go in my place! I spoke to the organizers and they’re up for it! So who wants to go to Barcelona Design Week?

As the event is not until June, a finalised itinerary has not yet been released but the focus of your trip will be a 3-day conference called “Design is Future” at the Disseny Hub Barcelona.

Your duty is to simply document your experience there. Take photos of the things you see, and the people you meet, and write an article about your experience (to be published on Booooooom within a week of your return). I want to make it clear this is not a paid gig. This is a free trip (flight, accommodations, food covered by the event) to take part in Barcelona Design Week and ultimately an opportunity to meet new people in a really fun city.

If you’re interested in this opportunity, you must be available for travel June 3rd – 9th. We’re looking for a competent writer, interested in design, who can take great photos (if you have a sense of humour that’s a bonus).

 

To apply, simply leave a comment below with the following:

-Attach a photo you took recently (size 400px wide).
-Tell me something interesting about yourself (1 sentence).
-Link to your Instagram.

 

We will announce the winner the weekend of March 31st in our Secret Email Club, if you’re not already a subscriber you can join here: tinyletter.com/booooooom.

Mind-Bending Series by Artist Victor Enrich

Enrich1

In “NHDK,” fine artist Victor Enrich takes a single image of the NH Deutscher Kaiser Hotel in Munich and re-imagines it in a variety of different ways. Some changes are subtle, with Enrich simply adjusting the size or arrangement of the building, while adhering to basic architectural constraints. Others are absolutely mind-bending! Check out more images, plus a video compilation below!

Earlier this year I was invited out to a festival called IAM in Barcelona, and I spoke about my motivations for running this website. They recently uploaded my entire talk to Vimeo. This message in the image above is what I wanted to leave people with. For me, life is not about eliminating fear it’s about using it! I’m pretty much at a point now where I have no real desire to do anything if I’m not at least a little bit afraid to do it.

If you’ve followed Booooooom for a couple years everything in this video may be old news but if you’re new here and have no idea what Booooooom is or who I am (see how I brought it back to IAM) then feel free to watch the video of my talk below.
