We visited the Mingarro brothers, also known as Brosmind, in their Barcelona Studio to have a chat with them about what influences them and what’s like working together with your brother.
Founded by Juan and Alejandro Mingarro in 2006 Brosmind’s style is fresh and optimistic, combining fantasy and humour in their award winning illustrations. With clients ranging from Nike, Microsoft & Virgin to Gillette, Honda & Volkswagen their work is in high-demand, but they do try do balance this out with personally motivated projects such as their Brosmind Army or the Brosmind City.
Juan & Alejandro were a creative team from an early age spending their time drawing comics, building vehicles and making home movies with their parents domestic camcorder (almost an early Be Kind Rewind). Though both brothers began their studies in completely different fields (Juan graduated in Pharmacy and Alejandro in Industrial Design) they then both continued to study at art school. After graduating they briefly separately worked at advertising agency Villarrosas and FABRICA, the Benetton Research and Communication Center in Italy before they got together to found Brosmind Studio.
As our first studio visit interview we couldn’t have asked for better subjects & hosts than Brosmind. Approachable, friendly & funny a lot like their work! The brothers went through our questions finishing each others sentences and are incredibly interesting to watch and listen to.
We hope you enjoy the interview as much as we enjoyed filming it!
