CK: So what draw you to Joan Miró as your inspiration for the challenge?
JF: I just love his work! His use of colour, abstract shapes and the expression that comes from his surrealism work. The fact that he comes from Barcelona also made it a bit of a no brainer for me.
CK: When we spoke to you about the brief we had no idea that you would end up here for the design, it's very 'us'!
JF: HAHAHA thank you! It was a great project to be involved with and difficult to stop thinking about at times. I also knew very little about Barcelona as a club so I had to really get into understanding what they were famous for, bar the obvious.
CK: Do you think if you did the same job again you might still gravitate towards this particular artists work?
JF: It's hard to say? But probably yes. He's an artist I don't feel gets the recognition he sometimes deserves. But like most artists and their works – it's so subjective. A bit like people's love for certain football shirts.
