posted in Mr CUP News  at 5.00 PM from Ubud, Bali / Indonesia listening Ben Harper
So, it is now 00h00 in Bali, and we are the 12 november ! After almost 1 year I get the idea of "Mr-Cup" here it comes, the site is online. A big thanks to Mathieu for his help and for not getting crazy each time I change my mind... Graphic exchange is still my blog, it is now integrated to a bigger project to have everything on the same site.

THE blog

So, after 6 years and half, the new Graphic exchange is here... It has all what was missing on the old version : social links, comments, direct links...
 
I also introduce a lot of new sections that need to be fill. We have repost all the articles done since july, all the others ones, thousand and thousand ones done since june 2006 can be found in the archives here.
 
As you can see, there is also sponsors now. After years doing the blog without it, it was time to bring them in. But I do not want this to be random adverts, I want to select only products and brands that fit with the spirit of this blog. I hope this will help me to dedicate even more time to post and help me to continue to visit studio and share about creativity. If you want to receive the media kit, just contact me at contact(a)mr-cup.com or use the contact page.
 
A new section is the EVENTS, that I hope will grow in time. I post some for now, but if you have more, you just can submit them using this form. Event submission is free until 2013, then a small contribution will be asked.
 
That said, I wait for your feedback, and if you see some bugs, please write me or leave a comment... Enjoy life ! (I do).

SND CYN Studios and Ty Mattson CBS posters

posted in Graphic | Interior  at 10.21 PM from Ubud, Bali / Indonesia listening Muse the 2nd Law
 Already one month and half in Bali and I love it (specially as I can go to Singapore)... But what I miss is a big nice office. We always want we don't have... I was luck to visit Ty Mattson studio last year, and it was really inspiring... and he brings it to another level... It present it well, so just have to quote him :

Mattson Creative is a small design firm, by design. The only downside of running a boutique studio is that you really don’t need that much space to do it. I’ve always wanted to work in a big, ultra-creative office – an inspiring environment, teeming with interesting people, doing inspiring work. But I’ve never wanted to manage the number of employees that would necessitate a studio of that size. My passion is design, not management. I wanted the energy, community and culture of a large creative agency…I just didn’t want the agency.


So I set out to create the type of office that I wanted to work in, and I invited my friends and colleagues to join me. It turns out that they were looking for the same thing I was: a unique environment and a creative community. I decided to expand our existing space in Old Town Irvine into a collaborative workspace for creative professionals. We filled it quickly and now the space is home to artists, designers, photographers, producers and developers. And I get to go to work everyday with my friends. We call it SND CYN Studios – which is derived from our address on Sand Canyon Avenue.

 

All summer we’ve been working on the building– a 125 year-old former lima bean factory – reimagining and redesigning the interior into a one-of-a-kind creative workspace – and we’re almost finished. Stay tuned to my blog for more pictures as we finalize the studio. It’s exciting to see it coming together.

Some pictures of this amazing space.

Olivier Guirault

posted in Mr CUP News  at 10.46 PM from Ubud, Bali
As I am working on mr-cup.com, it will also includes an updated version of my portfolio. Among new projects, are this picture of my artist friend Olivier Guirault. I love his work, and sadly he is not a "web" guy, so I HAVE the show his work... My aim is to inspires you, as much as he inspires me... His also the owner (and seller now) of the house I present here and design a web site for.

When we shot the picture of him drawing (last year, as you can see the christmas tree on the back), we have a great time listening to an old Genesis album... I send a free wood letter if you guess which album it was...
