One of the biggest factories of vinyl is in France, and never stop production for 60 years! In these days of “vinyl revival” Redbull (yes, Redbull) made a great article with beautiful photos on their blog. I do not find an English version, but you should take a look only for the images!

As a vinyl collector (check my dedicated instagram acount @mrcupvinyl) I wanted to share Invisible Creatures new projects for a long time. It is really impressive the contrast between their music projects, illustrations and toys but everything is at a very high level of quality!

Holographic foil printed CD by Fundamental

As I work on the next edition of the letterpress calendar I am exploring paper and printing technique. I wanted to use holographic foil printing but I guess the design of the cover won't look right with it. So we are more on a gold foil, but nothing is finalized yet. If you want to be sure to update on the launch of the calendar, subscribe to the newsletter here. This week I also update the www.mr-cup.com page that brings you to my 3 websites now: this blog for inspiration now at www.mrcup-blog.com, my work is now at www.mrcup-studio.com and the shop at www.mrcup-shop.com. It was important to separate the blog from my work.
Also, October will be crazy with Adobe Max coming in Las Vegas where I will be happy to attend invited by the Adobe France team ! This is amazing! I will also come back to Paris to visit some studios in early October and in Madrid at the end to do a talk! In the middle of that, we work on the new blog design! I will sleep after Christmas! 
Here comes a nice CD cover which uses the holographic foil printing for all these graphics elements by Hong Kong studio Fundamental. Enjoy.
