exhibition "D-Day" at the Centre Pompidou 2005

My desire was to translate a thought of design a little indirect ; a design that is not in the obsession of controlled shape, smooth and industrial ; a design that allows the human accident, elegance with ruggedness. Hence the choice of a typography which is now part of the standards of design - the Din - but treated in the headlines with fluorescent color and with stencil with sharp edges, as well as soft edges, the result of the imperfection of can spraying. Each title was surrounded by texts with different proportions, in black and white. The whole formed clouds of big green fluorescent titles which left room for a "handwork accident," the irregularity.

mots voyageurs #2

Pour ce projet, initié par Malte Martin, chaque jour du mois de septembre, deux mots seront affichés avec une présentation étymologique pour retracer leur voyage avant d’arriver dans la langue française.

Pour cette installation, qui célèbre ainsi le métissage de la langue commune, nous avons eu le plaisir de recevoir des créations de graphistes et de typographes du monde entier.
