Talkie Walkie is an illustration agency based in Paris. We represent a selection of international illustrators, collaborating with a wide range of clients in the fields of press, communication and culture.
The Good Life
The Good Life is a hybrid magazine teeming with useful and fun info, and printed on attractive recycled paper. Laurent Duvoux skilfully illustrated one the magazine’s recent articles on homeopathy and the questions around its usefulness. The design showcases Laurent’s trademark simplicity, which makes these images so powerful. Out now!
Damien is always drawing, and we are delighted to be able to share a select few of his recent personal drawings. These sublime sketches show the simple moments of his everyday life, gatherings with friends, and landscapes he has passed through.
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.
Le Comptoir Général
Thomas Cantoni rethinks a dazzling new logo and a poster series for le Comptoir Général, a timeless spot in the heart of Paris.
A fresh collaboration between Laurent Duvoux and magazine Le Pelerin on the sensitive theme of addiction. Laurent has created two captivating illustrations that deal subtly with the problem of alcoholism and lead us to ask ourselves – do I drink too much?
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?
Fantastic new images from Thomas Cantoni adorn a series of posters illustrating the iconic buildings of France’s major cities, for Image Republic. Thomas has created two new posters: one of the legendary lighthouse at Cap Ferret, the other of the Citroen garage in Lyon, a registered historical monument. Both images present a skilful composition that gives them an eternal quality.
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.
Greeting card 2020
Laurent Duvoux wishes you a happy new year 2020!
Kim pays tribute to the old Vogue and Elle covers that have become cult. And, at the same time, to feminine elegance through these two beautiful illustrations taken from his personal work.
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.
The French accounting firm Becouze once again asked Bruno Mangyoku to create their greeting card for the year 2020. Bruno signs a very cinematic scene, which is part of a funny and quirky series of accountants with blue immaculate suits , surpassing themselves in any situation.
Elegant, visionary, passionate, 2020 promises to be a great vintage wine! Junart is a project that connects winemakers and artists. These meetings have already given rise to very beautiful collaborations, notably with Jean Michel Tixier, like their last exhibition in Lyon on December 12th.
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.
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.
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…
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.
