Mr Cup selection 01

posted in Print | Packaging | Design  at 10.34 PM from Home (near Arles) / France listening Genesis live 2007
I have more ideas than time! The redesign of this blog took much more time than expected, especially with the calendar and the shop, and the client projects too! I would like to post more here, I would like to post daily, but my days are only 24 hours... So, better done than perfect, I will more subjects/projects and maybe fewer images, but at last, I will post something! Here comes so inspiring project I wanted to share...
 

Vaughan Oliver Archive

 
Vaughan Oliver is one of the designers who inspire me the most when I start design in the 90's (yes I start in at the 90's but it was the 90's...). His work and relation with 4AD were my dream job: design album sleeves and all the tools of the record company... I had the chance to me him in Barcelona Offf festival this year. It is also there I discover Unit edition, launch a kickstrater for a book about Oliver archives... I would love to visit them such as I visit Peter Gabriel studio last may...

Forefathers group new website

 
I present Forefathers work 2 times (here and there) and the evolution of this studio is amazing! The projects are inspiring but their new website is just WOW! All the details and the way they present the portfolio page is my favorite... and the skeleton as the footer...

The illuminated bible by Dana Tanamachi

 
A designer is often asked to design the front cover of a book, and maybe some illustrations for the inside... Only Dana Tanamachi could be asked and able to create 500 hand-lettered illustrations for a new edition of the bible! The project is presented on this dedicated page www.illuminatedbible.org,  and I invit you to check the illustration index to have an idea of the work done by Dana...

Letterpress calendar update and new ebook

Letterpress calendar update

The Kickstarter campaign for the letterpress calendar is now half his way and we are so close to the 200%. The start was fabulous, and I expect it to slow down a little in the middle. Anyway, one of the things I prefer on this project is the collaboration with other creatives I admire! It is already a great feeling when they accept to work on the project, but even more when I get the design! I try to select the sentences according to what I know and feel about each designer work. Here comes the latest design I received.

This year cover is designed by Tom Lane known as Ginger Monkey. For every edition, I ask graphic designer and typographer to create unique font work. This year edition will feature unique designs by Salih Kucukaga, Nick Misani, Reno Orange, Keith Tatum / The Type Hunter, Jeff Trish, Stefan Kunz, Lauren Hom, Jef Millotte, Kelli Anderson, Francis Chouquet and Me!
They are currently working on the design and they will be shown as soon as possible during the campaign! Here come the first designs by Stefan Kunz, Lauren Hom and Francis Chouquet.

For this year edition, we will use 2 ranges of eco-friendly papers developed by Favini. The REMAKE collection is high-end uncoated paper with a pulpy look. The special touch and the natural look of the paper are due to the up-cycling process which includes leather residues to substitute FSC cellulose and is produced with 100% green energy. The CRUSH collection is a range of papers made using process residues from organic products the replace to 15% of the virgin pulp. By-products from Kiwi, coffee, hazelnut or almonds. FSC certified, GMO free, this paper contains 40% post-consumer recycled waste and is also produced with 100% green energy. And as for the past 3 editions, and the posters, it will be a collaboration with Studio Pression!
