    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.

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.

Entre

Louie is a studio creating narrative podcasts that explore and explain particular features of our modes of consumption, our cultural practices and our desires. Kim Roselier has sensitively illustrated the cover and each episode of the ‘Entre’ (Between) podcast, in which two siblings recount all the Wednesdays of their life as part of an extended step-family. The illustrations are made up of some beautiful graphic compositions, paired with a stunning color palette, inspiring an immediate desire to listen.

Mr Porter

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.

L’Express

Newspaper l’Express turns once more to Jules Le Barazer to illustrate its report entitled “Political Correctness Takes on Children’s Books”, published to coincide with the Salon on Children’s Books in Montreuil at the beginning of December. Jules’ trademarks are evident in this witty, quirky diptych, which highlights the damage inflicted on children by censuring – or self-censuring – their literature. The question arises: if we smooth over too many rough edges, are we at risk of boring our children?

Queer Icons

Antoine Corbineau is behind the lively illustrations to this superb book celebrating a host of LGBTQ figures. These icons of the queer community have, collectively, defended civic rights and fought, throughout history, against all forms of discrimination. Featured among these pioneers are Josephine Baker, Laverne Cox, Ellen DeGeneres, Keith Haring, Neil Patrick Harris, Harvey Milk,  Frank Ocean and Ruby Rose: just as many icons of pop culture as there are militants and revolutionaries who fought – sometimes to their death – for their right to be what they want, and to love who they want.

XXI

The revue XXI produces original and quality content, demanding high standards on both the editorial and artistic sides. Bruno Mangyoku contributed to the autumn issue, illustrating a fascinating tale about Andreas Georgiou, a Greek economist and former IMF official whose life changed the day he revealed the extent of the Greek deficit. Bruno gives a serious and powerful portrait of a man attacked from all sides, and the scapegoat of a country in crisis.

Bols

More than 440 years ago, the Bols family opened a small distillery in Amsterdam, nestled just behind Dam square. There they elaborated a fresh new gin recipe with a subtler flavor; making its way across the Atlantic to the United States, this new gin played a major role in the cocktail revolution. The brand has since become an institution, and the Bols distillery has reopened in its birthplace in the center of Amsterdam. To mark the occasion, the distillery asked Cruschiform to create a series of large-scale illustrations to decorate the windows. The result is these four richly-detailed graphic compositions, which recount in engaging fashion the history of Bols and the world of mixology. The designs can be seen at number 14, Paulus Potterstraat, in Amsterdam.

M, le magazine du Monde

Jules le Barazer is no stranger to working with newspaper Le Monde, and the resulting images never fail to be both apt and comical.  Here we see once more his fluid line illustrating an article concerning French mayors who never went to university, but have used the music world to climb the career pole, like the founders of Dour Festival and Les Vieilles Charrues. The image is at once disconcerting, wry and humorous, and also very, very effective.
