Industry talks – Ferran Lopez

Ferran Lopez took us through a very interesting timeline of his life and all the kinds of things he has done throughout the years. He went through some of the companies he has worked with and for and has also given us some wise words that He has learnt from in his time of being a creator. He has also made me reflect on myself and made me have an understanding that sometimes we don’t know what we wants to do but it is okay to trial and error. Here is a short timeline of what he has done.

He started by talking about the small part in spain he is from and that he had moved school a lot when he was younger. He then started to talk about the type of places people used to work in like colortex and iriscrom. He used to look up to people who worked in places like this then changed his mind and went in a different direction and wanted to make the logos better and come back and show people in his city what nice logos were meant to look like.

He was a very busy man he had a band, he played volleyball, he worked as a waiter all whilst studying at uni.

He then started to reflect on where he was and how he felt at the time. He felt like a failure and felt he did not know where he was going with his life so he gave us more wisdom.                  – 29 years old                                                                                                                                                              – 28 awards won                                                                                                                                                 -12 hours per day

He then again started to reflect on where he was and what he has achieved and how he feels about this now.                                                                                                                                                – 34years old                                                                                                                                                                 -51 awards won                                                                                                                                                   -9 hours per day

Wisdom                                                                                                                                                                Always start by why not what. Do this with everything in life                                                                  Success in inversely proportional to the amount of hair you keep                                                                              The only constant is change

I really liked the bits of wisdom he gave us because it isn’t your usual wise words from creatives and I feel I could really take this into account and start to reflect on myself and think about the way I could improve.
