Mr Cup selection 01

posted in Print | Packaging | Objects & shopping  at 10.34 PM from Home (near Arles) / France listening Genesis live 2007
I have more ideas than time! The redesign of this blog took much more time than expected, especially with the calendar and the shop, and the client projects too! I would like to post more here, I would like to post daily, but my days are only 24 hours... So, better done than perfect, I will more subjects/projects and maybe fewer images, but at last, I will post something! Here comes so inspiring project I wanted to share...
 

Vaughan Oliver Archive

 
Vaughan Oliver is one of the designers who inspire me the most when I start design in the 90's (yes I start in at the 90's but it was the 90's...). His work and relation with 4AD were my dream job: design album sleeves and all the tools of the record company... I had the chance to me him in Barcelona Offf festival this year. It is also there I discover Unit edition, launch a kickstrater for a book about Oliver archives... I would love to visit them such as I visit Peter Gabriel studio last may...

Forefathers group new website

 
I present Forefathers work 2 times (here and there) and the evolution of this studio is amazing! The projects are inspiring but their new website is just WOW! All the details and the way they present the portfolio page is my favorite... and the skeleton as the footer...

The illuminated bible by Dana Tanamachi

 
A designer is often asked to design the front cover of a book, and maybe some illustrations for the inside... Only Dana Tanamachi could be asked and able to create 500 hand-lettered illustrations for a new edition of the bible! The project is presented on this dedicated page www.illuminatedbible.org,  and I invit you to check the illustration index to have an idea of the work done by Dana...

Adobe Max . The community pavillon

posted in Life & travels | Print | Objects & shopping  at 3.12 PM from Mr Cup Studio (near Arles) / France
adobemax mrcup 01
 
The past week has been crazy, with a 24 hours trip to Vegas, 3 days and a half there and 24 hours travel back! In such a short time, discovering the crazy city, and then even more crazy Adobe Max event: 12000 creatives in a giant place sharing about inspiration and technology! I will try to do more article, but you also can see the ones we do (in French) on this small dedicated page with Adobe France guests.  
 
The part I really like when I discover Adobe Max last year was the "community Pavillon":  the place where brands and small business can present their products and ideas: bookstore, type foundry, tee-shirts, posters, everything at the same place! I shared a lot on Instagram and Facebook all along the way but here come pictures I shoot in the place! Enjoy.
 

French papers

French papers team spend the 3 days of Adobe Max to roll their fresh printed posters and give them to all the happy attendees that came by their booth! And if it was only that! This year they also gave some nice book from CSA design (who design the posters and all the amazing communication of the brand) as well as a set of letterpress coasters... The thing is to come over and over to their booth, as they can bring new stuff from the boxes: stickers, badges... The only thing you can not get is the printing plates of the posters and they are beauties!

The Adobe bookstore

 The problem of going to Max, is that you can not bring everything in your luggage! So great books to get: Jessica Hische, Aaron Draplin, Kelli Anderson...

Some update from the Studio! Over the past weeks, we work on several projects for clients but found some time to adapt the creative manifesto to this giant wall in the studio! With the help of team and intern, we apply it last week and I am really happy with the result! Will try to take more picture of the studio soon, but need to find time to organize all the mess before that!  Some behind the scene photos.
