Who we are
Slow is a creative independent team founded by Joan Gallifa and Dani Vergés in Barcelona, 2011.
We help brands create and strengthen relationships with customers, users, employers and society at large.
Our work goes from concepts to execution, exploring the limits of each idea.
We always believe in all projects we are involved, so we treat it directly and experiential, becoming a opportunity to learn and a professional challenge.
Human insights are the starting point in all our strategic and creative work, and for us this is the essence of the design. That’s also why we consider technology as a way of serving people, not the other way around.
We understand our work as part of a broader experience. Research, dialogues and interviews allow us to have a huge knowledge and understand our clients at the most.

Our workshops are an opportunity to break the routine, think with different perspectives and boost the creative process. This is why we focus on analogic proceedings and try to minimize the computer time.
Our goal is to create a space for exploration and improve the understanding of the individual’s creative process: a space to share through the pieces and conversation what is discovered.
Our role is to initiate and stimulate the conversation: it is not to dictate, direct or judge it.
It is not about the participants doing what they think that they are expected to do, it is about them enjoying the experience. We will find our own voice through experimentation and a different type of work.
The recommended duration of the workshop is 2 days, minimum, to 5 days. Time is important, as it is to let ideas rest, to be able to take care of the process and to stimulate the experimentations, and trial-error type of learning.
Everyone can take part of a Slow workshop: age, jobs and previous experiences in design do not matter.
The recommended room for the workshops is a work room with a big table and a projector.
