Walter magazine crowdfunding !

posted in Print  at 3.09 PM from Tacoma / United States

Walter logo

 

After weeks of preparation, I am please to accounce the launch of the crowdfunding campaign of the Mr Cup magazine : Walter. We choose Ulule as you can change language and currency.

 

If you follow this blog, it will not only be a printed version of what you found here or in the ebooks, but a real magazine ! Walter is not another graphic design magazine, or just another design magazine; Walter looks at creativity, on the aesthetic and functional research, regardless of the time and place. Walter is a quarterly magazine of 180 pages, 21x28 cm format. The edition is limited to 3,852 copies (1883 + 1969, dates of birth and death of Walter Gropius). The texts are in English and French.

 

Why Walter ?

I always love this Walter Gropius (founder of the Bauhaus)

Terra poster by Kevin Cantrell

posted in Exellence | Print  at 11.00 PM from A train from Seattle to Portland / United States
KCD-Terra-mrcup-01
 
This is the Terra poster designed and sell by Kevin Cantrell, that I present here several times ! We will collaborate to use this design on the front cover of the first Walter magazine, I guess as varnish or something else, still working on the idea...
 
I will let him present the TERRA project : it is inspired by map insurance lettering. The text is taken from the first few verses in genesis on the creation, suggesting the infinite possibilities to create using gruppo cordenons paper. The negative space around terra creates a circle further expressing the concept of earth. Terra is currently being printed in 14 versions: wood laser etching, as well as copper foil, green foil, and brown foil on various papers.
 
Yes, you well read, 14 versions ! Here comes the wood one and variations. 10 of these posters are available for speciall support pack of the Walter magazine crowdfunding project !

Albert Menes

Albert Menes via www.mr-cup.com

Albert Menes is a French brand of delicatessen products created in 1921. Products are sold in dedicated stores as well as in supermarkets, this is where I usually see these beautiful products. As many brands they are absolutely absent from the design sites we visit, us, designers...I love the retro-modern side, of course.

Excellent work! However, I think the B.O.I.D project dragon is too similar to the Wales national dragon, even the gold coins look...
