DESIGN MY FLAG
SUMMER WORKSHOP

Place branding, identity, and flag design for the neighborhood of Poblenou.

Title: Workshop ‘Design my flag’

Language: English/Spanish (depending on demand)
Location: Barcelona
Price: 500€
Limited places

 

The programme is aimed at co-creating a flag for the Barcelona neighborhood of Poblenou.

Across nations, flags have always been a sign of identification and communication. Today, we are struggling to be represented by a place that should highlight our similarities instead of separating us by our differences. Our opportunity is to use design as a driving force to engage and connect with one another.

Students will be encouraged to go out into the neighborhood, to get to know its personality, as well as engaging in leisure and cultural activities. We will give them the tools for flag design as well as a methodology for place branding, in order to stimulate the process of research and co-creation. The final proposal will be selected and presented to the city. 

Poblenou is a neighbourhood in the cultural heart of Barcelona, one that has seen a flourishing of new businesses emerge thanks to forward-thinking ideas, innovation, technology and design. Nowadays it’s also a hotspot for renowned companies and studios such as Amazon, Canada, Disseny Hub, Mobile World Capital Foundation, Hey Studio, Goroka, Glovo, Playground, Sónar, Primavera Sound, and Mango Innovation Centre among others.

Poblenou Urban District, the Municipality of Barcelona, local associations, creative studios and companies, as well as international experts on place branding will be participating in the workshop. Additional activities will take place including a bike tour around the neighborhood and a creative studio visit.
