Let's be clear, sports, what is said sport, Javier Mariscal (Valencia, 1950) has not practiced too much. It does not consume it. Neither understands nor needs to do. But hardly a type so little integrated in the world of physical effort has been so decisive in the world of sports. His mascot Cobi marked a before and an after in the organization of the Olympic Games demonstrating to the world that Barcelona, at that time was the world capital of design. Nobody better than him to create the trophy As they will receive tonight the winners in the XII edition of the As Sports Awards.
Mariscal has just returned from Italy where he has given a workshop on character creation with a fantastic group of talented young creatives at Fabrica, Benetton's creative experimentation center run by Oliviero Toscani.
In 1993 Mariscal was asked to make a poster as part of a campaign to promote Bénédictine, an herbal liqueur of French origin whose original recipe dates back to 1510 and is marketed since 1863, and present it with a modern and fresh look.
