”I HAD TO REVERSE THE RULES I HAD ALREADY LEARMED AT THE GRAPHIC DESIGN SCHOOL”
The very first thing they told me from day one working at Mumy´s was “be bold and a rebel”
Being a member of the creative staff and design team at Mumy´s is very special. I had to redefine my career as illustrator.
This open projection to work and deal with design is completely different from all the methods learned at College and provoked an artistic explosion erupting from my head creating a fine balance to make our product visually attractive and sophisticated and being able to produce emotions like happiness and to be perfectly wearable this is a very complex process that we accomplish every day.
”PINK FLOYD'S PSYCHEDELIA AND ITS INFLUENCE AT MUMY ROOM”
Psychedelia emerged at the mid-sixties as a direct reaction against war in Asia and lined up with the movement for women rights and racial rights worldwide. It was all about trying to escape reality to the hallucinating world of drugs that hadn´t reveal yet it’s destructive and devastating side for human being. At the same time with Psychedelia the hippie movement was looking for a turn to nature and peace and emancipation from the oppression generated by Wars
Presumably musicians like Pink Floyd composed their themes under the effects of LSD and other hallucinogens which produce optical distortion and deliration, therefore graphic design tried to illustrate and reproduce those effects on a visual and artistic basis. At Mumy´s we take all that influence into consideration to deliver unique pieces, each one of them reflecting a concrete concept that embodies in one piece hundreds of different influences.
”FREE FROM ALL CREATIVE OBSTACLE”
The cover for Dogs by Davis Bowie was designed by the great Guy Peellaert hyper realistic a collage that resulted quite disturbing, as an evidence that punk had broken into the world of illustration and design to stay as a strong component. The designers at the time were trying to highlight the contemporary conflicts, like Vietnam´s war as trying to describe the society they were living in.
Deepening into these issues is exiting and contributes to develop our creativity when creating each of Mumy Room collections. Using all that experience and knowledge in the evolution of design is helping us to aim for the best visual and artistic development of the brand.
If there is something we should highlight about Mumy Room that would clearly be our creative and design staff. Our designers are the “Chefs” who shape Mumy room´s universe, design and creativity and the delicate work we make while conceiving and producing each piece is what talks best about who we are.
From 2017 Mumy room has a team of designers who are free to create and bring fresh ideas on the table. Freedom and Imagination are cornerstones in our workroom.
We cannot forget "Tafi" our pet, who is a fundamental part of the team, especially when it frees us from stress and encourages us in the morning ...
