posted in Nice to meet you  at 10.15 AM from Agde (near Sète) / France listening Nick Drake Three Hours

The Studio Poa Plume is french design company from Bordeaux. I follow them for, I have to admit, more than 10 years ! They will celebrate their 20th anniversay so, it is a long story... I love visiting studio, sharing experience and creative feeling with other designers... And when it is very nice guys (and girls) like this, time is too short...

Their studio is amazing, it is an old factory with its vintage walls and industrial lights. Seeing they are "only" 6 to work in it, they have enough space to put some nice old videos games and even a letterpress printer that sadly, can't print ! But it is a nice decoration object !

We also share the same passion for old commercial from early 1900's books. And the studio, even with big clients and budgets, always communicate with humour... an exemple... a small card which said "Found me a good design agency in the next 2 seconds or you are fired... Easy, do you know Poa Plume ?"... Better than "Our design team can found the best solution for your communication", no ? If I was a client, choice would be easy !

The big project of the team for the past years is the books of August Derrière. I already present the first book here, and the second one came out last year. It is really hard to understand the jokes from non french speaking readers, but only the design worth it... For this second edition, they even design and sell postcards and posters... An exellent exemple of designers who found a good way to have fun (and money seeing the numer of copies sold !) with their self initated projects.

Nice to meet you : Ty Mattson

posted in Nice to meet you  at 10.00 PM from Boston / United States

Last thursday, I came to visit Ty Mattson in his amazing studio of Irvine, which is close of moreyellow office where I was spending some time to work (being freelance is like this, you never can't really stop working). I exchange email with Ty often as we have the same respect and admiration for each other work, both of us are big fans of Lost and collect vintage items ;)

Metting in person, sharing about creative process, seeing the amazing silkscreen posters in real, his amazing collection, and visiting his office in this old building was a very inspiring moment...

We are in Boston now, after spending some days in San Diego... will show some more images in the next post...
