Happy Pills is a great concept from studio m, this is what they had to say about the concept for Happy Pills.
An investor proposed setting up a shop in the narrowest venue we could imagine. Next to the Cathedral square, on Els Arcs street, between two large buildings, there was a small place available. A really small place. And our client had decided to open up a sweet shop. Fine. We went to the area for an on-site inspection. Much to our surprise and concern we found that in the surroundings there were no trace of any schools nearby with their hordes of certain candy consumers. We had tiny premises in a central spot, the aim of setting up a sweet shop, few children and lots of tourists. What could we do?
Firstly we recomended our client to focus on candies and come up with a strong concept around candies (we convinced him to forget about softdrinks, chocolates, peanuts or chewing gums). And well, if we couldn’t sell sweets to children we would have to sell them to whomever walked by: adult Barcelona residents and tourists. For this we needed to make sweets interesting for adults. With this frame of mind, we came up with the fact, more or less proven by all, that eating something sweet entails a slight improvement in mood. In this light, sweets are small mouthfuls of happiness. And today mouthfuls of happiness are most necessary for such serious setbacks such as Sundays with no football or more trivial matters such as the unbearable lightness of being. Things being so, we needed a name: Happy Pills.
When it came time to put the idea into practice, we thought it was best to endow it with a “pharmaceutical” touch, so to speak, using vials we tend to associate with aspirin or vitamins. Happy Pills had to be that remedy against the ails of our time: Mondays, keys that go missing, invisible friends with no imagination, the pineapple diet, global warming, square roots, the price of housing in general, and specifica boredom.
We thought it would be a good idea if each person decided which malady the wanted to fight and with what happy pills they would do it, which is why at the shop you take a vial and fill it up with the candies you prefer. After that, they seal the bottle with a tamper-proof cap and let you choose which label best suit your mood, in either Spanish or English.

I’m obsessed with this pop-folk band from Cataluña. They take their catalanismo to the core, but the songs are so upbeat, the lyrics are so genuine, that they have been able to connect with young Catalans so much more than hipster indie bands from Barna.
Their songJennifer was a fun summer hit, but I and many of us underestimated this band. The rest of their CD is amazing, very folksy, with lyrics that can connect not only with young catalans but also with those of us who have lived and explored Catalunya. Their song Nou Barris and M’en vaig al camp explore the ups and downs of Barcelona culture and Barcelona living.
The Barcelove is a 100% silicon bracelet with your phone number laser-engraved on it to make sure your child never gets lost again.
I don’t have kids. But I want one of this bracelents so I can claim my love for Barcelona. I think this idea and the campaign that goes along with it es very clever. I love that the logotype features Barcelona’s signature sidewalk flower.
