Last days in USA, next post will be done from home...

We are now in Boston... We are having nice moments here, amazing city, so different from what we saw yet... I wanted to visit The goosefish press, but finaly can't... By the way, thanks alot to all the poeple who gave good advices and ideas, it was really helpfull... will thank you personaly when I have time (maybe preparing the emails during the 7 hours flight to came back home...).

And if you are gluten free, this the BIG advice : I went to the Hard rock Cafe of Boston (do not know for the other towns), I want to take a look to their collection, and when I ask if they have any gluten free meal, I was more than happy to know they can do gluten free burgers with special bread they prepare... that with nice GF fries... wow ! This was great to eat goooood junk food ;)


Meeting Ty Mattson

perso / august 13th / 8.01 PM Boston time / Posted from Boston


Last thursday, I came to visit Ty Mattson in his amazing studio of Irvine, which is close of moreyellow office where I was spending some time to work (being freelance is like this, you never can't really stop working). I exchange email with Ty often as we have the same respect and admiration for each other work, both of us are big fans of Lost and collect vintage items ;)

Metting in person, sharing about creative process, seeing the amazing silkscreen posters in real, his amazing collection, and visiting his office in this old building was a very inspiring moment...

We are in Boston now, after spending some days in San Diego... will show some more images in the next post...

This afternoon, we will visit Ty Mattson as he is nearby and has invited us to visit his amazing studio that I posted about here recently...



Packaging in Whole foods

packaging / august 7th / 11:36 PM California time


I am now in Orange country, California, which such different from Amherst. We are so pleased to be here and have good time with friends... will came back on that later this week.

The thing is, when visiting a country, you have eyes wide open, everything is interesting... so, as I have my camera when I was looking for some stuff in a Whole Foods (for non Americain, Whole foods is a natural and organic grocery, I shoot the products the caught my eyes...

Us, designers, we're used to see nice pictures of modern packaging on white background... but the same products in a real shop with thousand of other messages around is different...

First days in USA . Amherst & Sansori

perso / august 03td / 1:08 PM USA time


We arrived in the States on Sunday and since then, everything has been going wonderfully... Everything is great to our French eyes, and it is heaven for the gluten free people that we are!! Whole Foods! I want one ;)

The Sansori talks, the reason why we are here, is where we went on Monday and it was a great moment of exchange. I guess they bring even more to me than what I can bring to them... a real exchange! I will post more about this later. Some pictures I have taken so far are uploaded for you from the Amherst campus cantine... and then some graphic inspiration after it... enjoy!




15 days in USA

personal / july 14th / 11:44 AM


So, on july 31th, I will took a plane a plane to USA ;) It would be my first time there and I am pretty exited...

I was kindly invited by Kristin Kim, founder of Sansori, to speak about my vision of Social entreprise in Amherst College (Amherst, Massachusetts, USA). I am impatient to spend a nice moment sharing ideas...

We will spend some days in Amherst, and on august 05th we will fly to the other side of the country, in California, to visit Jordan Mauriello of I work with Jordan for almost 5 years and we only see each other via our computers... Would be nice to share some beers... So, will spend some days in San Juan Capistrano, near LA.

On August 11th, we will fly back to Boston and spend some days there before coming back to Paris, and then take the train to Nîmes... Pretty long trip...

Need some designers tips...
So, after knowing my plan, I guess it would be nice to met some of you, or visit studio... if you have ideas of place to visit for the crazy designer (and letterpress passionate) that I am, I would live to hear from you.

and Gluten free tips...
I am really pleased to bring my lovely wife Frédérique and daughter Thaïs with me... The only thing is that both of them are gluten free and milk free too... It complicate that kind of travel buy, hey, life is too short... I guess some of you can help us with that too, so any suggestion for shop or restaurent in Amherst, around LA, or Boston are more than welcome...
