From the past weeks, I have had the chance to work with the Ferrand team on a project I can not reveal yet. Everything started in March, with they contact me following me on Instagram. They invited me to the Cognac area, where they have their vineyards and cellars, but most importantly, an amazing castle that did not move for years: the Manoir de Mademoiselle. It was like visiting Disneyland for me. I post a lot of photos on Instagram and even a video of the visit. Here comes a little selection.

Ferrand Cognac packaging were designed by the ones and only Stranger and stranger. The Legendaire box and bottle are inspired by the Manoir main door.

They also create the first french Gin CITADELLE and the art deco bootle and the design is so inspiring too.

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!

This year again I have the chance to be one of Adobe France Insider at the annual Adobe Max Event ! This year it was in Los Angeles!

The International Printing Museum

I will share my experience day by day. Adobe invites us a day before the event starts. On Sunday morning, the Los Angeles printing museum organize its annual printer fair! As my friend Mark E Sacket, from The Box SF was there to sell his Ephemera collection, I jump in an Uber and was there right in time to enjoy the smell of the ink and see amazing things.

The Los Angeles Art District

Some hours later, I was in the middle of the LA Art District with more than 90 other « influencers » for a visit! You imagine the contrast with my morning surrounded by wood type and printers!
