Are you on the hunt for a good design time? Fancy a bit of sexy design work? Haha—look no further than achos! They have their very own tinder profile and have been up to some naughty things. We had a chat with Ben from achos, who filled us in on all the dirty details ;D

Give us the elevator pitch on what you do.
achos! is a communication and interactive design agency based in Barcelona and Bali. We are a creative lab that escapes routine, dedicating more time to experimenting and investigating each project. As a result we provide fitting creative strategies and design solutions. These allow our clients to distinguish their brand and most importantly reach and move people.

3 naughty things done to get ahead.
We Broke our first award, stole Sagmeisters Work and Hijacked CreativeReview.co.uk (https://www.creativereview.co.uk/sagmeister-walsh-and-the-robbery-that-never-was/)

Collaborations we’re working on…
We are always on the look out for new collaborations on both personal and client work. Currently we’re collaborating with Dani Aristizábal (www.lazyeyes.cool) and Sergi Delgado (www.sergidelgado.com) on several projects. They are two graphic artists one based in Colombia and the other in Barcelona. Check them out!

What have been your highlights since you’ve started out?
Launch of 3 successful self promotional campaigns, working for international clients, speakers at OFFF 16 & travel a lot with work.

Who are your top five design crushes right now?
Resn, Dani Aristizábal, Sergi Delgado, Domestic Data Streamers, Teyosh. In love with all these people.

What is the design landscape like on your city and where do you fit in?
Barcelona’s design scene is full of great studios and agencies that focus on graphic design. Most of these were our mentors at college like Lo Siento, Hey Studio, Mucho… Mainly pure graphic design studios and agencies focusing on print. We found a different approach in design by prioritising on interactivity and users experience in our designs. Turning the process around working from digital concepts back to print allows us to create great reactions to our work.
