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.

Wire Design : des identités claires et impactantes

"Clarity, confidence, impact". These words begin the introduction of british studio Wire Design. Founded in 1997 by Peter and Tim Higgings and John Corcoran, the studio is located in the city of Clerkenwell. Even if their works fit with all the classical communication needs, I find that the most original and beautiful part of their realisations are visual identity designs. Often playing on a minimalist style, based on geometric shapes and bright colours, typography has an important place too, and the brandings are often great in their whole.
Pictures and links in the rest of the post.
