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!

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.
