Design-ability

Synopsis: In a visual world, original design is more valuable than ever - and harder to find. As advertising agencies strive to be different, here is one that just is.

La Casa de Carlota produces beautiful campaigns for clients like Nestlé, San Miguel, Danone and Barcelona’s City Council, competing with the best in the business.

Their artists have Down’s syndrome and autism. Their conditions, that so many see as their flaws, are at the heart of the company’s success.

Design-ability explores the value of difference through the experiences of Odile, Joan, Quim, Carlo and Sophie and their unique approach to their lives, work and creativity.

Awards: Feel The Reel International Film Festival – Audience Award;  Short Film Breaks – Winner Best Mental Health Short Film etc
