Print design : LWLies - On the road edition

On the road par Little White Lies, un magazine expérimental à la manière de Jack Kerouac

For their "On the road" untitled issue, creators of independant english magazine Little White Lies decided to get inspiration from Jack Kerouac and his famous book "On the Road". They produced the magazine with the same process as Kerouac wrote his manuscript : on a long single paper scroll, like the old volumens.
The result is a very unusual magazine format, mixing up writing machine text and original illustrations, directly drawn on the same paper scroll and almost in the same time. The "handmade" aspect is very present and recalls some artist's travel sketchbooks. Illustrations are varied and interesting, but the detail which really seduced me is the calligraphed headtitles, very dynamic and contrasting with the structured paragraph of machine typed texts.

Tres Hombres branding

Identité visuelle du rhum Tres Hombres

Tres Hombres is a very special rum brand. Created by three european friends (they met each others on the sea), this rum, produced in the caribean, is the very first rum of the 21st century to be conveyed in Europe by an environment-friendly way.To achieve this goal, the three friends built a sailing boat, allowing them to cross the Atlantic ocean in two months, in order to deliver the product in Europe. The whole production tries to be as much ecological as possible, by labelling the bottles manually by example.
The branding has been created by dutch art director Kim Stassar. Even if it's not very original, it fits well to the simple but adventurous concept, like an invitation to the travel and the sea... The ship theme, which is pretty common in rum identities, gets here another dimension when we thought that the spirit has been delivered by this very special sailboat.

Webdesign selection : Mountain

I start a new type of article with this post : thematic selection of webdesigns. This kind of posts are pretty classic and you can find a lot of examples on blogs, but there are a lot of themes that nobody talk about. By example : mountains. Maybe you wonder why making a selection of webdesigns about such a theme, but I had to make it for a professionnal project and I thought it was a good idea to share it with you some of the most interesting websites. By the way, feel free to share interesting websites you bookmarked in the comments.

Samsara, an audiovisual experience

Samsara, une expérience audiovisuelle unique

You may have notice that the blog's activity has slowed these last weeks and I'm sorry about it, but the launch of my communication studio takes me a lot of time and energy. So I'll try to take advantage of the calm of August to share with you some of my recent discoveries.
It's not already a hot news here in France, but I think that a really great documentary film is about to be launched at the end of the month trough the world. This film, called Samsara, directed by Ron Fricke and produced by Mark Magidson, is the result of 5 years of work through 25 countries. An interactive map, on the film website, shows all the locations with some photographs. Entirely shot in 70mm, the movie is conceived as a kind of guided meditation, a unique audiovisual experience in which only music and images lead the viewer's mind.
