    Alexis Tyrsa - Galeries Lafayette

    Voir le projet

    Alexis Tyrsa had the pleasure to create the entire visual identity of the food court located in the basement level of the new Galeries Lafayette Champs Elysées. One of his many tasks in this huge and exciting project was to re-create each restaurant and food brand logo while maintaining a sense of cohesiveness and consistency with the Galeries Food Court branding.  The resulting eye-catching mosaic murals behind each food counter are extraordinary in their intricate detailing.

    Jean André - Le Petit Livre du Sommelier

    Voir le projet

    The name was originally going to be ‘Wine, for friends’. This short sommelier’s guidebook is THE practical guide that brings together everything you need to talk more or less convincingly on the subject of wine. The key elements are the occasion, your friends and pleasure! Gwilhem de Cerval leads us on a quirky voyage through regions and grape varieties, lovingly illustrated with maps and drawings by Jean André. The result is a joyful and savvy guide, miles away from the elitist clichés associated with the topic – but also informative, even for the more knowledgeable aficionados. This comprehensive and accessible guide makes a perfect Christmas present!

The New Yorker

The New Yorker once more turned to Jean Michel Tixier to illustrate an article for the magazine’s ‘Campaign Chronicles’. In the US, political campaigns are launched by politicians and professionals, but only really get going with the aid of volunteers. JMT here creates a series of portraits that mirror this tense campaign: politicians and their volunteers in the state of Iowa, showing what drew them to their candidates and what influenced their political visions.

Première

Bruno Mangyoku produced the cover of a special issue of Première magazine: “Those were the 2010s: Looking back on a year in cinema”. A family portrait of the roles that defined the decade, made up of sharply-observed images of characters already on their way to cult status. One film is presented on this cover – not by an actor, but by an object. Can you work out which it is?

Stylist

Stylist magazine handed Jules Le Barazer a brief to create two illustrations themed around changing representations of the Devil over the centuries. From the time of the renaissance, Faust began to be portrayed – notably in a play by Goethe – in the fashionable dress of the time (stockings, puffy short trousers, moustache). Ever since then, the Devil has been red, and wearing stockings. Jules here reiterates his story-telling skill, with a magnificent illustration of the Devil at the tailor’s shop.

Nike x Convoy

Tyrsa recently collaborated with Nike and Convoy, adding handwritten text to a series of photos by Maciek Pozoga for Nike Football. For Tyrsa, it was a fresh challenge to write with abandon, to let go and explore new styles. In doing so, he demonstrated his continued enthusiasm to use his different collaborations to create, to reinvent himself, and to explore.

M le magazine du Monde

M le magazine du Monde asked Jean Michel Tixier to illustrate their article entitled “Streaming and French cinema: A marriage of convenience”. Thanks to their financial muscle, companies like Netflix, Amazon, Apple and Disney are attracting more and more makers of films, documentaries and TV series, and this revolution is changing the way this creative output is written, filmed and promoted. Jean Michel provides a brilliant graphic, not lacking his on-point sense of humour: the cinema leaning on Netflix, Netflix supporting the cinema.

Cinema makers

Cinema Makers  is a book that follows  the travels of two young film buffs, Agnès Salson et Mikael Arnal, through the independent cinemas of Europe, exploring how these places are reinventing themselves in the digital era. The authors turned to Antoine Corbineau to produce this dynamic, graphic cover, illustrating the new philosophy of these spaces that have gone above and beyond being mere screening-rooms, becoming bars, bookshops, nurseries, production spaces, coworking spaces, theatres or concert-halls, libraries and exhibition spaces.

Wall Street Journal

The Wall Street Journal turned to Antoine Corbineau for an internal advert on the rankings for the best US airports. Antoine’s work valorises detail and space, bringing a playful, graphic quality to a complex and constantly changing set of information around airports. He gives the work a characteristically lively dynamism, which seems very simple at first, but which is full of small details.

Julien Pacaud collaborated with Mr. Porter Journal by signing the illustration for resident therapist David Waters’ column, “Why Good Leaders Know Themselves”. He continues to intrigue with his surrealist collages, mixing different temporalities along with elements a long way from the everyday. Transposed to a larger scale, these collages take on a poetic dimension that draws the eye, leaving it to us, the viewers, to tell the story and let our imaginations run wild…

Duvel

Nearly 10 years after landing second place in the International Duvel Design competition, Tyrsa has once more been chosen by Duvel to create two mini-glasses as part of the Duvel Collection. Following in the footsteps of designers like Parra, Eley Kishimoto, Mike Perry and Stefan Glerum, Tyrsa has created two different glasses: a gold one, representing the lightness and elegance of the beer, and a silver one, marking its strength and audacity. A typographic work that very neatly represents the beer’s duality, being at once elegant and powerful.
