Designer name: Ubeda, Ramon & Canalda, Otto
  2002 -
Ramón Úbeda (Born Jaén, 1962) is one of the people who has contributed most in recent years to the diffusion of the culture of design in Spain. He has done this on all fronts from the media to the heart of the industry. As a professional he is very difficult to classify as he works equally as brilliantly both as a journalist and as a designer, be it graphic or industrial. He entered the world of the creative professions through the ETSAB where he met Juli Capella and Quim Larrea, two unique collegues who gave him passion to work in the world of design magazines. They worked together on en De Diseño (El Croquis Editorial) and later, on Ardi (Editorial Formentera/Grupo Z) as chef editor. Then, as a journalist specialising in design, he has come to work on some of the most influencial national and international publications, such as Diseño Interior, Domus o Frame, and in others publications like El País Semanal (Grupo Prisa). This name can be found on books by publishers as Actar (El Universo de Jujol), Electa (COCOS y Mail Me), Phaidon (Spoon) and Salvat (Diseño gráfico con Mariscal). He is also the author of the Ruta del Diseño BCN produced specifically for the year of Design 2003 and luxurious Sex Design (distributed by Gustavo Gili). He has simultaneously carved for himself a career as a both graphic designer and director of art, he has organized numerous exhibitions and has ceaselessly nurtured this passion for the world of creativity and imagination included design and industrial production. Otto Canalda (Born Barcelona, 1977) is a rarity among young designer because he chose to start on the ground floor of the industry which is where project really come to fruition. No sooner had he finished his studies in Elisava then he joured the creative development department of Bd Ediciones de Diseño, where he actually worked together with Ramón Úbeda —editorial director of Bd— where the projects of other designers were prepared for the market. It is a complete work and of vital importance within the gestation cycle of whichever design. The best qualification possible for an emerging designer who has decided to build his career from the very foundations of his profession. Otto Canalda has made good use of his valuable experience to secure the success of his own projects, those of the Inout lamp and Binaria chair, has created together with Doctor Badía and produced Oken (2003).
