The God of the Three and the students of Elisava design the windows of the Bunsen hamburger
If there is a famous hamburger in all of Barcelona that is undoubtedly the Irish Bunsen hamburger, located in the heart of the city. Recently the decoration of its windows has changed, an action that has been executed by the students of the Master in Illustration and Comic of Elisava (University School of Design and Engineering of Barcelona) and that has been tutored by the renowned illustrator The God of the Three .
Hamburger, icon for new design
The design of the new image of the Bunsen windows consists of two large glass murals that run along the two facades of the hamburger shop. At the heart of this illustration is a hamburger. At his side are striking buildings that are based on Gaudí's work.
Above all, a great sun evokes the Mediterranean climate of the city. "The technique of the glass mural introduces the particularity that the mural is mutant: depending on the light and the time of day, or if viewed from the inside or outside, we can see different nuances and finishes," says Javier Navarro Romero - better known as The God of Three. The colorful design combines the urban spirit of Barcelona and the Irish origin of Bunsen, managing to evoke the sensation produced by tasting one of its spectacular hamburgers.
Mery Cuesta and José Luís Merino, directors of the Master in Illustration and Comic of Elisava, choose an institution each year to carry out this action and invite a professional illustrator to be the project tutor. The Bunsen burger and the illustrator The God of the Three have been chosen this course to collaborate on the project.
Before carrying out the design change, each student presented their own individual proposal to the client. Of all of them, he chose the one that best suited his image and what he wanted to convey. In the end, the design chosen was that of the student Felipe Khedi. However, all the students of the master participated in the development of the mural. The God of the Three has guided the students in the development of the concept, in the formal part of the project and finally in the implementation, based on their experience in glass designs.
With large windows and a striking white and yellow decoration, Bunsen has a small menu focused on the quality of its products. The menu, printed in the format of a business card in order not to waste paper, presents a simple offer consisting of two hamburgers (with and without cheese) and two sizes (normal or double). Their hamburgers stand out for their flavor, the result of the excellent quality of their products.
