They are all leading figures in the design field. During the MAD2012, we had the chance to talk with Nando Costa, Tara Cyphers and Dana Steffe from Cuban Council and Vitaly Friedman, editor of Smashing Magazine.

We had the opportunity to meet some of the most relevant speakers in the last edition of MADinSpain. Once a year, this international event gathers some of the best creative designers, design studios, interactive agencies and motion graphic companies from around the world.

They shared with us their ideas on design, creativity, team work and the upcoming trends in the design world. They also told us about their passions and gave us some very useful tips for new generations. This is the result of our conversations in MAD2012.

Have you noted down any ideas to put into practice? For us it was more than inspiring and this is what we would like to highlight.

I always try to get out from my comfort zone. To do something new, which I have never done before.  That´s the only way to discover new things that no one has thought of before.
Nando Costa, graphic designer, Art Director at Instrument.

Sticking to our tradition, we asked Nando to improvise a new version of our logo. This is the design he came up with.

We bet you know Vitaly Friedman´s Smashing Magazine. We recommend you to keep an eye on Nando Costa´s work and to visit Cuban Council´s fantastic website.

We´d like to thank them for sharing their time with us and we hope to meet again soon. Maybe in the next edition of MADinSpain?
