Franklin Mill new collection

posted in Objects & shopping  at 4.44 PM from Home ! Maruéjols Les Gardons (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France
I personaly think chalk design is over used lately (seen it at McDonald, after Starbucks, that's a sign...), but it is now or never and Franklin Mill does it very well on this new line of products.

Here it comes, the first post of 2014 ! I love all the promises of a new year ! I spent the first day of the year with my wife and daughter on a beach, with some wood letters to play with ! Here comes the result !

I wanted to see the sea for several months, and even if it is only an hour's drive from our house, I had not found the time. It is a perfect landscape to begin a year : immense extent, no limits, bad weather from one side but the sun on the other !
 
I want to thank you, you who come from time to time or can not start your day without a ride on this site, you who follow me for 8 years or who had discovered this site in 2013 !
 
Obviously, I have dozens of projects in mind and most important coming in a few days: 3 ebooks ! I was left on 2 and then finally in the running, I made a third ! Shop sales also arrive on January 08 ( "official" day of winter sales in France ) . Then ... new posters , and many other things ! And and as always, my selection of projects to let your 2014 being inspired and creative !

This weekend, at the invitation of Clint Harvey, Head of the School of Design College Australia, I went to Paris to meet Denis and Mylène, who have a lettepress studio... on a boat!

I met Clint 3 years ago during a short time in Brisbane to do a talk, I had the great pleasure to do a typography workshop and print with wood type ! A great time. Since then, we kept in touch and when he told me that he would be in Paris , we had to see us! But I did not expect that! Imagine 4 fans of typography and printing on a large houseboat with a printing studio ! Add it a little wine, some design books and it was a beautiful exchange !

Denis and Mylène spent six months in Australia, that's where Denis is formed letterpress with Clint. After a career in finance, Denis decided to change his life and get to letterpress ! Mylène is a graphic designer, what a duet! So he bought the machine, then invited an American printer perfecting his technique ! Another fine example of people who created their life and " when we want, we can !"
