Near Uzes, Friend's house (for sale)

posted in Mr CUP News  at 5.21 PM from St Maurice de Cazevielle / France listening Glen Hansard Rythm and repose
As we move to Bali later this year, we do not have home anymore... So, we move from one place to an other ;) It is great as we do things we would never have done if we have a place to stay... And we are now in the great house of Olivier & Caroline... 

They have an amazing taste for home decoration. They buy this very old house 2 years ago, and change everything ! As they are in holiday for the coming weeks, they leave us there beautfull home while we take care of the dog and cat (and the garden too;)... In fact, the house is for sale, as they buy a other amazing new place... If you want to visit, just contact me and we could have a drink ;)

Mr Cup update / moving to Bali / Letterpress calendar special offer

posted in Mr CUP News  at 12.28 AM from St Maurice de Cazevielle / France listening Intouchables soundtrack
When we decided to visit Thaïland and Bali, it was to see if another life was possible... And it is ! So, seeing the Helevetica wood letters and otherprojects started with craftmans there, we deceide to do it, living there for some months, or more... We have now to figure out all the "technical things", but life is too short to wait !!! 

As you can imagine, there is a lot fo things to do... The idea of graphic exchange was to do real exchange with other designers, so all these books, letterheads, borchures, etc... Added of the things that I collect and all the stuffs I have designed, it is a lot of boxes... 

I kept around 15 copies of the letterpress calendar, and seeing that I get request of people who want one almost everyday since it is sold out, I deceide to let 10 copies go and keep only 5 for me ;) So, the www.letterpress-calendar.com web site is open again, until these 10 copies are sold... Some new pictures, now we are in august... And sorry, but the 2011 copy is out of stock, I have to keep some for me ;)

Mr Cup new products (preview) : The Helvetica WOOD letters
 
Being in Bali was on of the most creative experience I ever have... It was so easy to found people that can bring to life what I have in mind... Doing the harmonie intérieure stickers is something, but I walways want to push my love for letters to another level... I have the idea of an Helvetica wood letters collection for a long long time, and it is something important for me to present these first images... They werre taken earlier in June, when I get the first samples from Mr Eka, the wood craftman I met in Bali and I work with...
There will be 2 Helvetica collections, one in Suar wood, a local common wood, and the second one is in colors, made on recycled teak wood... Each alphabet will be in limited edition of 500 letters... coming in small fabirc bags I will show you next time...

I really like the next image as it is a very nice memory to me, talking with Mr Eka how to do wood coasters with my logo... You can see on the front a Bali coffee, which is so strong !!!
