I love tumblr & instagram

posted in Photos & work news  at 11.09 PM from Home ! Maruéjols Les Gardons (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France

As you may know, I am addicted to social media, but this is for the best, I guess it improve my visual life and inspiration source more than it makes me lose time ! OK, facebook makes me lose a little time...

 

tumblr

I love to compose with others pictures, and order them by colors... and I love to mix everything as inspiration can come from anywhere ! iammrcup.tumblr.com/

Instagram

As Jeff Sheldon said on a tweet the other day "Instagram has made me a better photographer. Not the app itself but the idea of consistently posting and refining the way I see things."

 

This sum up everything ! It is not about doing photogrpahy, it is to share and show how I see the world ! Follow me at instagram.com/iamrcup

I am in Paris for some days to shoot and try all the gluten free places we can for a coming article in the 3td issue of Niépi magazine. I have to test a lot of exellent gluten free food, visit very nice places and met even nicer people... hard ! You can follow me on instagram as I shoot a lot, and even on the instagram of niepi as I shoot for it too (my iphone in my left pocket, my wife one in the right pocket... people think I am crazy... oh, yes, I am !)... I plan to visit some design places too, but haven't even fount the time to present you nice shops for my last Paris stay 2 months ago... As I read today "if I only I have as much time as I have ideas..."
 
Perfect exemple, I never share on this blog the book I design for Elodie Rambaud last year. She asked me if I want to design the 288 pages of her favorit and unusual adresses of Paris ! It is very well printed and distributed by Marabout, and is full of amazing secret places... hope they will do an englih version soon.

New letterpress business card / Found sale -20%

posted in Shop updates | Photos & work news  at 9.37 AM from Home ! Maruéjols Les Gardons (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France
Every year since 2009, I do a new business card. So for 2014 I work with Studio pression to print this "tag" one. It is printed on 3 colors on front, with illustrations printed first in light grey, and then yellow and black printed over it... What I like with letterpress is the experiment, you are never sure of the final result ! And it is always better than expected ! The paper is 700g and it has a special cut out shape... Check the past ones here and there.

-20% on found products until the end of may

I have a lot of new items to list and also new letters coming... Until the end of the month, the FOUND collection is at -20%. All the found items are original vintage items, unique and available only once. And the only way to get my new business card is to order something in the shop ;)
 
There some old maps available. I frame some of them and they look great... as the shape are not always the same as the standard frames, I put some old paper to fill the blanks...

Some people write me to tell me it is sad the web section of the blog is empty, but it is always hard to present a web site on a blog like mine, as I mainly present images intead of just a link. If you want to see web site design, I think my pinterest page is more appropriate, and I often check this page too.
