As a vinyl collector (check my dedicated instagram acount @mrcupvinyl) I wanted to share Invisible Creatures new projects for a long time. It is really impressive the contrast between their music projects, illustrations and toys but everything is at a very high level of quality!

We have a common project with Territory studio for some months (years ?) and hope to bring it to life soon! If you see any recent movie over the past months, you have seen their work!! They work in wide range of disciplines, but what fascinate me is their work for screen graphics : they craft original and stunning realized screen content and UI design for on-set to support film narrative and performance. It was again the case for the amazing Blade Runner 2049, with a perfect translation, in screen graphic, of the mood of the movie. 
As they said : Tapped to create screen graphics for the sequel to Ridley Scott’s iconic film, Territory joined the art department in the very early stages of production. With an open brief to reconsider technology interfaces and interaction systems, we worked closely with Director Denis Villeneuve and Supervising Art Director Paul Inglis to support storybeats, performance and context. Adopting an experimental approach, the team set out to create highly original screens. Working across 15 sets, we delivered over 100 assets for on set playback, also driving the design direction for those concepts delivered to post.

As I work on the next edition of the letterpress calendar I am exploring paper and printing technique. I wanted to use holographic foil printing but I guess the design of the cover won't look right with it. So we are more on a gold foil, but nothing is finalized yet. If you want to be sure to update on the launch of the calendar, subscribe to the newsletter here. This week I also update the page that brings you to my 3 websites now: this blog for inspiration now at, my work is now at and the shop at It was important to separate the blog from my work.
Also, October will be crazy with Adobe Max coming in Las Vegas where I will be happy to attend invited by the Adobe France team ! This is amazing! I will also come back to Paris to visit some studios in early October and in Madrid at the end to do a talk! In the middle of that, we work on the new blog design! I will sleep after Christmas! 
Here comes a nice CD cover which uses the holographic foil printing for all these graphics elements by Hong Kong studio Fundamental. Enjoy.
