Where can we find the beauty of a design? Nacho Lavernia is the Creative Director of Lavernia & Cienfuegos and one of the top references in Spanish design. In 1994, he co-founded the studio Lavernia & Cienfuegos with Alberto Cienfuegos, where he develops product design, packaging and graphic design projects for Spanish and multinational companies.
In this episode we talk about the role of design in building a brand. He told me why he thinks less is more when it comes to packaging design. We also reflected on how humor creates powerful emotional bonds with consumers.
