posted in Shop updates | Print  at 9.40 AM from La maison papillons . Montclus (near Barjac) / France listening Ben Harper

Grab a magazine is totally different to make a blog. For this blog, that I started 9 years now, I find a project that inspires me and I share it with you. Simple ! The presented creative are in 99% of cases very pleased that I speak of them or their work.

For a paper magazine the approach is different. There should be a subject (this is not a simple "portfolio" magazine), see if there are enough pictures available, then contact creative ... And some just do not have time to send pictures or participate. Suddenly, the first issue of Walter takes much longer than advertised. But knowing this, we have already started working on the next issue!

 

Among the other elements that justify the delay (I say justifies, no apologies ...) is the fact of wanting to make a bilingual magazine, in English but also in French, and want to print it in France as locally as possible . This is why even if the layout of the 180 pages Walter is more than in phase correction, we prefer announced August 24 for its release, because we prefer to advance necessary printing deadlines THE magazine need to be as nice as what we have in mind!

 

Thank you all for your support, all of which are participations in the crowdfunding sent from August 24, followed by pre-orders on the site. Here are more pages to (try) to make you wait, and thank you again for your support!

French type tour

posted in Life & travels  at 10.20 PM from La maison papillons . Montclus / France

It is rare that I can not find some time for this blog, but the last few weeks have been particularly busy. 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 will come to France for some days, we plan a small "French type tour", and I made him go to 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. 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 on the street when  I cross paths with Ben Harper doing skateboard! I call him and we talked a few minutes! I had no battery on 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!

The first issue of Walter is almost done... but sadly almost could take some more weeks, correcting and editing (in 2 languages) and printing that could be long... but we want it to be amazing, so it took time...

I will present in it the Singapore studio I visit back in 2012/2013, including Foreign Policy Design group that just finish a 1 year long personal project : www.thebrandguide.com

 

It is the first edition of the Brand Guide Series by Foreign Policy Design Group. Deftly balancing visuals and content, the guide rounds up iconic homegrown brands that attest to the current golden age of design in Singapore, and captures the creative labours gone into the making of the 17 brands featured.  This documentation of the creative inspiration and design processes through brand and design reports, is filled with takeaways and anecdotes capturing the vision to fruition of each brand owner.
