Following the success of the letterpress calendar, I wanted to create a set of limited edition posters. As for the calendar, the concept is to create a typographic illustration based on an inspirational sentence about design or creativity.
This was made possible only as I collaborate with Jean-Christophe, the man behind Studio Pression. Since we met in 2013, a strong creative relation has begun: his passion and knowledge or the letterpress printing process push me above my creative skills. When I create to visual for this posters, I was not sure how much details could be printed and how it will look like at the end. The result is above my expectation and printed on 350 g cotton paper, the relief is impressive and the feeling of looking at your creation printed in letterpress is unique! The sound of this beast is amazing...
We set up 2 editions: black printing on 350 g white paper, and silver printing on 350 g black paper. Each design is limited to 100 prints, all hand signed. They are now available at www.mrcup-shop.com

RHINE'S DICE

 
I also add some Rhine's Dice box set. Coming in a nice copper printed black box, each box includes 3 dices and instruction for trick ! Read a spectator’s mind using a pair of dice. Inspired by the tests performed in the 1930s by Dr. JB Rhine, Matt Mello has created a routine that will allow you to replicate psychic abilities.

Offf with Adobe : portraits by AKUsepp

What happens when you put a bunch of designers together in a city like Barcelona?

They have to do something together! I was invited by Adobe at Offf for the second year. Sebastien Spasic, known as AKUsepp on Instagram, starts shooting portraits of guests and speakers last year, as I show in this post. For this year, we want to push it further. We start with pictures with an object but after the first one, I think it would be even cooler if each of us personalizes the photo to show his work and style : pixel art, lettering, illustration... this is the result of the pictures done over 2 days!

Click each picture to know more on each creative!

Tomorrow I will be back in Barcelona for my 3td Offf festival, the place to be for inspiration! Again this year I came under the invitation of Adobe, with a bunch of other designers and creatives! It starts tomorrow for us, as we have a lot of things to do in Barcelona before the opening of Offf on Thursday! I really want to see "in real" Vaughan Olivier, Kelli Anderson, Annie  Atkins. Follow me on twitter, Instagram and facebook to share the experience and here come some pictures I took during last year edition!
