Self-promotional bootles created by Humans for Humans!  :
To celebrate two years since our foundation, we partner up with the amazing illustrator Eduardo Ramon Trejo, to create a series of 3 bottles that we gave to our clients as a gift. The entire process of the illustrations and crafting the bottle was made with all the care and attention that our clients deserve. Each of the labels represents crucial parts of the philosophy at the studio.  The first illustration represents humans and its existence as intelligent and aware beings. Through our intelligence, humans possess the cognitive abilities to learnunderstand, apply logic, and reason, including the capacities to comprehend ideas. The second illustration represents Humanity's universal and enduring interest in space, driven to explore the unknown, discover new worlds, push the boundaries of our limits, and then push further.  The third represents the legacy of humans on earth. Our concern about leaving a legacy we can be proud of. The bottles were produced under a limited stock, they are printed by hand with manual techniques such as blind emboss and foil to highlight the care we have in every project we undertake.

Hidden Treasures: the LOST BAUHAUS TYPEFACES

If you do not hear about this project, I invite you to read al the story here. While in Adobe Max last year, Erik Spiekermann presents a wood version of one of the Bauhaus typeface, with a workshop to print them! It was, of course, one of my favorite part of the Max 2018 market. You can find the fonts on Adobe font (which replaces Typekit by the way). Did you know that all the Adobe font are now included with your subscription? Pretty amazing.

It was a pleasure to meet Erik in person, and the next step would be to visit the p98a workshop. Discover it in this article.
 

For the love of (French) paper! 

Like past years, French papers did an amazing job with some free goodies for all attendees! Gold hot foil posters and Draplin postcards!

MAKE 100 / Mr Cup Letterpress coasters

 I discover letterpress printing 10 years ago. It basically changed my way of designing. My first items were my own business cards, and soon I created a set of 4 coasters to explore the possibilities. Limited (as all my products) they are sold out for a long time.
 

With first printing, I create a prototype of a wood box for a set of 8 coasters, but it never goes further, only 5 were made to see how it looks like. To celebrate the past 10 years, I decided to reprint the original coasters, create a set of 4 more coasters and an edition of 100 with the wood box as the part of the Kickstarter MAKE 100 project.
