  • Jean Jullien - Welcome !

    Voir le projet

    We are very pleased to announce that the illustrator Jean Jullien has joined us at Talkie Walkie! Jean Jullien is currently one of the most sought-after illustrators in the press in France and abroad. They’ve taken a liking to his singular perspective on our daily lives. Using simple lines in black ink and flat zones of colour, he casts a subtly subversive and poetic gaze on a range of subjects, from complex news stories to the personalities of dogs he encounters in the street… See his portfolio here.

    Voir le projet

    This season, Lacoste gave Jean Michel Tixier carte blanche to reimagine their emblem, the famous little crocodile. He conjured up an array of anthropomorphic crocs, each with its own look – a stylish hipster, for example, or an old-school Parisian dandy from St Germain des Près. Jean-Michel Tixier’s quirky and comical Parisian crocs have appeared full-size in ad posters, and also as logos on polo shirts, sweaters and totebags in the #crocoseries collection. Check out this limited edition series in Lacoste stores or on their site.

    Jérémy Schneider - To Share

    Voir le projet

    Jérémy Schneider has teamed up once more with French chef Jean Imbert, this time along with Pharrell Williams, for the opening of their new St. Tropez restaurant, To Share. Jérémy has created a gargantuan visual identity, based around an illustration of an imaginary funfair full of outsized fruits and vegetables. In his usual style, Jérémy signs off here on a rich and sophisticated identity, which can also be shown as an animation accompanied by music composed especially for the occasion by Pharrell Williams.

OpenLux is an investigation conducted by the newspaper Le Monde into taxation in Luxembourg, the tax haven at the centre of the European Union. The investigation breaks down the facts and reveals the clever schemes that allow several CAC40 companies and major fortunes to bypass regulations in their country. To illustrate this thorny issue, Julien Pacaud has created a series of collages that question the link between Luxembourg and and the wealth that passes through it.

La Case

Violaine et Jeremy once again put their talent to work, this time for the restaurant business. For La Case, the restaurant of chef Jean Imbert at the heart of the Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France, the duo created a chic, clean-lined visual identity that gets taken to the next level with hyper-realistic pencil illustrations by Jérémy Schneider. In the same way the restaurant’s cuisine is inspired by local flavours, Violaine et Jeremy were influenced by Caribbean flora and the space’s architecture.

Trevor Horn

Antoine Corbineau created the Memphis movement-inspired album art for Trevor Horn’s album Reimagine the Eighties. It features kitsch motifs, pop colours, and geometric shapes in homage to Ettore Sottsass, who created the movement one night in December 1980, deeply inspired by the irreverent spirit of the song Stuck Inside of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again by Bob Dylan.
