Design, Wood & Nature

I could say that this project was something that was "meant to happen". From a very young age I was always dismantling, watching and creating with everything thing that came into my hands. I remember what I felt the first time I saw one of those Coca-Cola cans that would dance when you clap. I had to know how it worked and five minutes after receiving the gift I was heading towards my desk with a screwdriver in hand.

I was constantly searching for ways to communicate and connect with people. I would use my toys and some of my cousins's as prizes for a raffle that I would make with a cardboard box. I also remember putting up a little shooting booth with plastic pistols. That same summer I would paint lighters with nails polish to sell at my family's bar. A whole series of memories that brought me here.

Now I dedicate myself to graphic design professionally, but a great part of me misses that little boy who did not stop creating new things. That's why Alix Crafts is born. A personal project that exists to give a new opportunity to that child to create and develop new ideas every day.

In the present this project serves as a counterpoint to the obligations and the pace of life that a salaried job such as graphic designer involves. To work with your hands, to dedicate the necessary time and affection to each thing, to leave aside the culture of use and throw and to contribute background and personal value to things are customs that I try to recover with this project.

Today it is wood accessories, metals and precious stones, tomorrow it will be ceramics, enamels and whatever is to come. Alix Crafts has learning and personal development as the main axis. If all this serves to communicate and make part of this dream reach you then it would have been a resounding success.
