We watched the world change before our eyes from the comfort of our aeroplane seats. The Yorkshire rain and wind battered our window on departure and the Costa Blancan sun warmed us on arrival. Jávea - a small coastal town - was our home for October. The pleasant, picturesque beaches and homes are overlooked by Monte Mongo. The residents chirp happily from their balconies and the scent of tapas and coffee saunters the streets. The town is not dissimilar from familiar Benidorm and Alicante although it’s main difference is the lack of high-rise hotels and apartments.
How do you rejuvenate your creativity? Travelling is one of our favourite ways. This is why we're excited to be voyaging to Sun and Co. in Jávea, Spain (later this month) for our next design residency.
"Residencies" are where creative professionals can choose to stay (temporarily) elsewhere, sometimes participating in specific programmes and opportunities. These allow artists and designers to work in new conditions which is often a catalyst for the imagination! They also offer a range of facilities and the chance to network.
