What I saw in… Spain.

Hello readers! It’s been a while I know… I took some time off and traveled abroad for a month. What I brought back are thousands of images, and deliciously happy memories to last me a lifetime. Believe me when I tell you I did not shop once, nope. Too busy taking photographs and honestly, just taking everything in… I thought I would share some of the more graphic and type driven images with you here. Starting from Spain, and we’ll work our way through a few more European countries later. Sounds good?

Montiel Restaurant / Barcelona
Besides having an amazing meal (best Spanish olive oil I’ve ever tasted!), this black and white mural with modern fixtures was pretty striking as well.

 

Font de Sant Jordi / Cathedral of Barcelona
For some reason, I was really drawn to this signage. The frame, the handwritten type, and those blue asterisks!

 

Picasso Museum / Barcelona
I really wish they allowed photography inside because this is by far, one of my favorite museums of all times. I was quite impressed with the color scheme and environmental graphics they had inside. Every room was painted a different shade of grey to accentuate Picasso’s colorful world.

 

Horchatería de Santa Catalina / Valencia
No, did not go in… but how about the colors on these buildings? So peachy happy aren’t they?

 

Calle Tinte / Cadiz
Somehow, even on a quiet side street of Cadiz, one may still find vintage western graphics, love it!
