frenchtypetour mrcup 01 frenchtypetour mrcup 02

 

It is rare that I can not find some time for this blog, but the last few weeks have been particularly busy.

 

For Walter magazine, you are likely to ask for news, when sending the first numbers is expected for several weeks. We decided to postpone the release in late August for technical and artistic choices. Indeed, some items can not be finalized because I can not talk about the project if people do not want to! A magazine must be done with photos in high definition, a coherent story and an editorial line, and if people do not answer emails or send material, we need to adapt... I will detail all this in a future post, but the release date is now August 24, 2015 to to avoid the "pause" summer holiday. Thank you for your patience.

 

Last week, I made "in real life" what I am virtually doing on this site: share what inspires me! I met Clint Harvey when I was in Australia for a conference in 2010, I made a letterpress workshop in his design school in Brisbane. We become friends after 5 minutes, passionate about typography and letterpress printing! We see each other again few years later to visit a friend of his... which prints on a boat not far from Paris (see article).

 

When Clint told me he come to France for some days, we plan a smal "French type tour", and I made him go around the cities and places that inspire me! Started in the south where I live, we ended our trip at the Museum of Printing in Lyon and flea market (that I will detail in Walter 1!) We imagined doing this kind of round with more people next year, if we have enough "crazy type people" interested and someone to organize the administrative part ... If you are interested in this "French Type Tour", contact me!

 

Then, on Sunday I was in the street when  I cross paths with Ben Harper doing skateboard! I call him and we talked a few minutes! I had no battery in my phone, which saved me from an embarrassing selfie, but I'm still amazed by the weak probability to cross someone you admired as that!

 

Trust the Unexpected!

I know the Spanish Sangrias brand "Lolea" for some time, but I was in Bercelone few weeks and it made me want to present it in details. First because after the launch red and white Sangrias bootles, they have declined for new products and the assembly is visually very coherant.

Secondly as I went to eat, by chance, at the "Casa Lolea", the brand restaurant in Barcelona, and the application of the graphic language in this place is inspiring!

Nice to meet you : The makers space (Seattle part 4)

posted in Nice to meet you | Life & travels  at 12.03 PM from Arcadie . Méjannes-lès-Alès (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France listening Pink Floyd

Seattle Coworking The makers space bu www.mr-cup.com

 

Back in Seattle ! I love coworking space since I work in Hubud in Bali. I am working on the Walter magazine right now and Ty Mattson send me his interview where he talks about his SND CYN office with this nice quote :

 

" I really believe that there is an intrinsic connection between what I do, and where I do it. Your work environment absolutely affects your work. Not just the interior design – although that is a big part – but also the social design. Everyday I get to go to work and be with amazing people. How great is that? The design is one thing, but the people bring it to life." Ty Mattson

 

The Makers space of Seattle is that kind of place. I take a quick look around before leaving the States last march and it is amazing ! Presentation :

MAKERS is an expansive 11,000 square foot coworking space in downtown Seattle. Perched on a hill overlooking the iconic Elliot’s Bay, MAKERS location is prime in its access to cafes, cocktail bars, shops, and parks. The MAKERS space is modern and chic, welcoming natural light and a clean open feel. Designed with history and sustainability in mind, MAKERS has incorporated many refurbished elements including polished bleacher board floors, salvaged windowpanes and desks made of recycled gym floorboards. MAKERS members enjoy access to premium business amenities, conference rooms, telephone booths, large presentation kitchen, and comfortable lounge area.

Starbucks Reserve Rostary (Seattle part 1)

posted in Life & travels  at 6.24 PM from Sentinel Hotel in Portland, OR / United States listening Eddie Vedder

Starbucks reserve by www.mr-cup.com

 

I am in USA for a week now and enjoying every moments ! Thanks to Provenance hotels who invite me here to visit their hotels and feel the cities before working on their brand ! 

 

In the coming Walter magazine I plan to present Coffee at its best, with nice packaging and places... It will be 1% of what is interesting in coffee as there are so much things to talk about ! I would like to present small and indpendant rostary, but while in Seattle, I can not not present Starbucks ! The first one was open here in 1971 and you still can visit it, and the latest most amazing one is here it ! It is call the Starbucks Reserve Rostary and everything is unique, even the identity ! Images will explain you better, here comes what we shoot there, mixed with official pictures of the place, as it is impossible to do this kind of pictures with so much people inside all the time !
