This year we are honoured to be included in the publication Festival Graphics by IndexBook.
An in depth look at the origins of Shit Log.
Caga Tió es como el nuevo superman. Hemos inventado una capa y las máscaras de la imagen tiene más impacto.
This is the story of Shit Log (Caga Tió) – A Catalan tradition where you beat a wooden log to make it shit gifts at Christmas. Have a shitty Christmas.
The truth about ButiClub has been revealed on French national TV.
The documentary traces it’s humble deli-bar beginnings to the food-fashion-art spectacle of today.
Take a behind scenes look at one of the greatest ButiClub events of all time. Featuring members, models and a naked buti streaker at the end!
The voyage to discover a cover concept directed us upwards. We looked to the stars and found new life in the solar system. Our solar system has eight planets orbiting around the sun. Eight planets. Eight letters. Influenced by children’s mobiles and wooden toys, we captured the “Yoro System” by creating a unique sculpture.
The Hungry voyage continues …
So far more than $7,000 has been raised, including a donation from Lionel Richie himself! Incentives include a “limited edition Vinyl Lionel head” and other wacky items. – USA Today
Judging from their cheeky Kickstarter video, the Barcelona-based creative studio Hungry Castle has a major thing for Flock of Seagulls hairdos, Tom Selleck mustaches, bright pants, popped-collar denim, plastic grandma glasses and general vamping for the camera. Such inclinations make them perfect contenders for winning the costume prize at an ’80s-themed dance party or, in this case, creating a gigantic sculpture of Lionel Richie’s head. – Cool Hunting.
What do you do to honor the 30th anniversary of Motown casanova Lionel Richie’s solo career? Make Lionel bigger, obviously. Artists Dave Glass and Kill Cooper of Barcelona’s Hungry Castle are currently raising funds to build a giant sculpture of Lionel’s head out of his own vinyl. That’s right, Lionel Vinyl… need we say more? – Huffington Post.
Public art causes no shortage of gripes. People often dismiss it as pointless, some may say a waste of money, others, in some cases, brand it ugly. Though something that can’t fail to raise a smile, surely, is a huge wooden head of Lionel Richie. Which says, of course, ‘hello’. – Design Week
Woah, how can we sum up ButiClub in 6 minutes and 20 images? Find out on Friday, 25th of May at Antigua Fabrica Estrella Damm.
Tickets are €4. Click!
Bvisio, a web tv channel approached us for an interview about ButiClub asking who, what and most importantly why?!!
Watch how we dodge their questions.
With it’s tiny wheelie eyes and white skateboard teeth, the Skateboard Monster roared into Iguapop Shop Barcelona. People screamed out hand painted profanities for the cameras whilst mixing it up with the Hungry Castle mouth.
Big scream out to Lamono Magazine and Jart Skateboards for letting us slice up 10 of your best.
ButiClub is making friends with fashion. Our homemade press passes allowed us to meet beautiful models, designers and personalities.
‘ButiClub, so hot right now. ButiClub’
We have just returned from our Madrid reconnaissance mission. We were given a tour of the Matadero creative space which will soon host Día de la Música festival.
Celebrating the initiation of the latest ButiClub members.
#26 Soon in Tokyo.
Hungry Castle has been selected to collaborate with Printnic in their new range of colourful books. The selected work Fried Sunday was featured in the exhibition They say me things.
This weekend we have been invited to participate in Food Cultura’s edible pop up store. Come down and see what we are doing.
Friday 16th of December 6pm.
Welcome to the inspiration wall. The challenge is simple, help complete the wall by drawing your interpretation of that hot Madrid style sun.
Select a colour, choose your tile and let’s get started!
Festival: Día de la Música
Color attack is a special stop frame animation created in collaboration with Soon in Tokyo and commissioned by Watx&Colors Barcelona.
The initial brief was to make a short film using the pop up book mechanic. We took it a little further by building the first ever popup-book-cuckoo-clock (cuckoo-pop for short).
A life without colour is just plain dull! HP knows this and so do we. Together we set up the HP Colour Lab in Madrid.
Kids of all ages came to observe, create and experiment with colour. There were lots of explosions!
This urban music festival brings some of the best alternative acts to the centre of Madrid. We developed an identity that drew inspiration from the streets. Focusing on the lettering techniques of tile street signs, we created a custom typeface and a series of transforming festival posters. After eight hours of cooking in a 1000° oven, these abstract, colorful tiles were ready to be shot.
Table for 32
What better way to celebrate our first year than by throwing the biggest intercontinental birthday lunch ever. Guests from London to LA and São Paulo to Sydney will all take part by dining out with their new pocket-sized friends (Castles are always Hungry). All we ask is that they eat well and that they don’t blink when their photos are taken.
See the photos.
This project began humbly; as a collection of quotes and words from the mouths of friends, lovers and colleagues. Born from our desire to understand a new city (Barcelona) and a strange language, it quickly grew into an exhibition consisting of illustrations, spray paint and some very strange little objects.
Pimp your MacBook with stickers guaranteed to bring you frame, fortune and sex appeal (not true, but the stickers are awesome). Stick with me baby is a special collection of stickers created with our friends Herraiz Soto. The concept grew from a desire to give people the opportunity to personify their laptops. The sets include the MacBook Bros, MacBook Mos and our newest addition the MacBook Hos. We hope you like them as much we do.
Norwegian label Ø recently invited us to create a unique identity and visual language for their new range of scarves. The result is elegant, timeless and at times a little quirky. Take a scroll through the new website.
A set of minimalist hand crafted tees, created in response to online advertising. As it turns out, spray paint and cotton is a nice combination (who would have thought?).
Each year New Era invites select artists from across the globe to develop an artistic interpretation of their classic cap. This year Dave was chosen as 1 of 15 artists in Spain.
The project puts a huge emphasis on both concept and the creative journey. With two weeks from the delivery date, the pressure was on to create something that would make hats turn.
Sit back and enjoy!
Join us next Thursday for a cheeky vermut and butifarra at the official ButiClub Book Launch. Jose, Antonio and the rest of the ButiClub classic members will be signing books from 7:00pm onwards, you don’t want to miss this!
Update: Thank you everybody for making the book launch another memorable event. Look out for the scandalous PanMan kiss in the Facebook folio.
On Friday the 8th of July 2011
Hungry Castle welcomed visitors to the ButiClub Exhibition in Barcelona.
Fifty hand crafted butifarras and large format prints made this an unforgettable spectacle.
It is with great pleasure to announce that we have sliced, stitched and stuffed fifty authentic butifarra sausages in honour of our ButiClub members.
These beautifully crafted members will be on display for all to admire at The Private Space Gallery on Friday the 8th of July.
For those of you who are unable to attend this epic event in Barcelona, please follow us at our Facebook folio.
Long live the butifarra!
Behind the scenes preview of a stop frame animation that brings together literally hundreds of found objects and characters.
Special thanks to our musically minded friends Pat (from Lost Valentinos) and Jack (from Bag Raiders) for giving the project a pulse.
(Coming very soon)
OFFF brings together studios, artists, designers and creatives from all over the world to share their experiences and latest projects. This year we were lucky to be amongst the best of the best as we presented our mildly hilarious experience in creating the first club (that we know of) dedicated to the appreciation of the butifarra sausage.
The presentation was a success and yes that is Stefan Sagmiester wearing a ButiClub badge!

Special thanks to our incredible team Kill and Post, the photo crew Mayka and Mauricio, our beautiful models Giulia, Edu and Soraia and let’s not forget Josep for supplying all those (unharmed) butifarras.
See the photos at buticlub.com
Proud to present our limited collection of ButiClub tees.
Each of these elegant butifarra artifacts are individually numbered and packed with love.
We wanted to create something special for our clients & friends.
400 teeth, 80 eyes and several hand painted hours later, these playful pieces were alive and ready for battle.
Send us an email if you’d like to see one in your city (castles like to travel).
To mark the inaugural ButiClub, we created stunt double sausages from felt for the more physically demanding action sequences.
Note: No real sausages were harmed in the making of these sausages.
Fifty ButiClub badges to join the most exclusive, most all time awesome, butylicious, club in the world ever (infinity * 50).
Concept artwork for the new ishe EP by Danger & Soraia.
Acts of typographic deconstruction result in scrambled visuals for fans to solve. Simply move the right way and you’ll make The Trip.
Shiny 3D sliding block puzzle made with letraset and a little bit of love.
I’m doing all right, getting good grades
The future’s so bright, I gotta wear …
Some fresh paint to brighten up the studio by Danger & Soraia.
ButiClub is a private members club dedicated to celebrating the butifarra.
We made t-shirts and collaborated with local butcher Victor to create the authentic packaging.
Like buticlub for membership.
Art & Design Barcelona invited Hungry Castle to take part in their wallpaper exhibition. The challenge was to create something engaging within the format of a record cover (31cm * 31cm).

Behind the scenes in the creation of The Trip artwork. Thanks Killian for being such a great hand model!
Tiempo BBDO recently invited us to collaborate on the design for the new website. We like designing websites and we like eating food, so it’s seemed like a great fit.
To jump start the creative process we spent a day in the kitchen with their pastry products. These are the results (the spinach and ricotta empanada was the clear winner).
