Offf with Adobe : portraits by AKUsepp

posted in Life & travels  at 9.47 PM from Home (near Arles) / France

What happens when you put a bunch of designers together in a city like Barcelona?

They have to do something together! I was invited by Adobe at Offf for the second year. Sebastien Spasic, known as AKUsepp on Instagram, starts shooting portraits of guests and speakers last year, as I show in this post. For this year, we want to push it further. We start with pictures with an object but after the first one, I think it would be even cooler if each of us personalizes the photo to show his work and style : pixel art, lettering, illustration... this is the result of the pictures done over 2 days!

Click each picture to know more on each creative!

I am back from Off Festival, my 3td time there and always the same feeling: super inspired! As last year I was invited by Adobe France, who do the things well: putting all these creatives in the same hotel, bus and restaurants can only bring some great ideas! I will talk about that later. Let starts with Vasava. We were invited there to visit their amazing studio. I could not shoot really decent pictures because we were 50 peoples visiting, but I want to found a way to share the experience! I found them on google map, so here come some screen captures!
 
I already present their great book they design for the Offf festival 2 years ago.

Here comes a small selection of their projects... very small because they have done so much things... Including the great socks they give us (and my daughter stole me at the minute I show them to her)!

This week I was in Paris to met a great new client, The Yard VFX, for which I design identity and communication tools, printed by Studio Pression. You can see some pictures and videos in my social media (facebook and instagram). As I was there, I want to visit some places I discover of the past months. The first one is The Laptop, a great coworking space, one of the first opened in Paris. 
 
In an old Parisian courtyard, the Laptop looks like a workshop from the outside (it was a print shop in another life), but it is a space warmly fitted inside. Custom-made wooden desks and colored armchairs, to promote serenity and efficiency! The Laptop comes from an idea of Pauline Thomas, who on his return from San Francisco began looking for a place to create her coworking space.

As I was in Paris, I want to visit a print shop I follow for a long time and which fascinate me! I want to shoot it for a possible article here and in Walter magazine, but they did not answer to my emails. So, I decide to knock at the door! The place is amazing, and I had the chance to met the owner. He appreciates the Walter magazine, but told me, nicely, that he does not want me to shoot or talk about it. They are really art printer, so I totally respect that, even if it was so frustrating to keep all that I see for me. 
 
As I often do when I am in Paris, I walk! 18 km to be exact, thanks to my iphone... And I use instagram along the way ! See the pictures there.

Bye Bye 2016 / Hello 2017

posted in Life & travels  at 10.54 PM from Home / France listening Westworld Soundtrack
2017
 
Here it comes, another beginning, another restart, another reboot, an other brand new year full of promises. Everybody said 2016 was shit because we lost a lot of inspiring and creative artists, but I guess we have to get used to that. I always like to focus on what I have done and what I hope to do instead of "resolutions". You should read this great article by Tobias Van Schneider about his "Anti New Years Resolutions"...
 

2016 was...

 
...another great year, full of success and failure. Big success but also bigggggg failure... I won't talk about it because if I have one resolution, it is to share (as much as possible) only the positive and inspiring things. So, at the beginning of 2016, I was getting the keys of the Mr Cup Studio, and was a great idea! Jef Millotte joins me and together we create a brand new portfolio and the new shop (the old one here is still up until February)! We also create 4 issues of Niépi, books, and so much more brochures and identities for clients! And of course the new letterpress calendar (and website)

With the mediafix team, we create the Walter Magazine Volume 2 and a new website. The magazine is now available worldwide as we show on this map!

2017 will be...

 
...full of surprises I hope ! My aim is to do the 3td Walter magazine. The plan was to do 2 issues a year but we fail at this resolution! I also want to create a smaller project, more local... have the idea in mind for a long long time! One other 2016 resolution I fail is to do something special for the 10 years of the blog, so I guess it will happen for 2017!
 
It was also great to meet great people over the year and travel to amazing place such as Italy in Torino and Milano, Barcelona, and San Diego for AdobeMax thanks to Adobe France. Here comes my year in a selection of images!
