    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.

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.

Les Échos

Les Échos took the decision to entrust the design of its logo to a different illustrator every week, allowing him or her to come up with a design relevant to current news stories, or that’s in keeping with the current mood. The subject can of course hinge on news, economic or political themes, but can also relate to cultural, scientific or societal issues. Kim Roselier decided to focus his attention on the drama unfolding daily in the Mediterranean, creating this gripping image to illustrate the despair and fatigue of the men, women and children who arrive, day after day, at the gates of Europe.

Les Mini Mondes

Recent studies suggest that the world of toys is disastrous for the environment – in France alone, the industry creates some 75,000 tons of waste each year. So two young French toy-lovers took it upon themselves to change things around with the creation of Mini Mondes, a brand of ecological recycled plastic toys, made wholly in France. They also turned to Antoine Corbineau, who brought his unique universe to the project, which engaged his interest in discovery and environmental protection. We are delighted to present the first Mini Mondes book, “Le Grand Départ”, introducing Jeanne, Jim, Oscar and Sacha, who are preparing for an adventure… Available at lesminimondes.fr.

Les Histoires Courtes

A beautiful collaboration of Laurent Duvoux with the collective Short Stories, based on a story without a beginning or an end, written by Baptiste Szuwarski. Laurent relates in three vignettes with a cinematic atmosphere, a scam – or how to be “pigeonner” on internet. We also appreciate his subtle reference to the movie Ghost Dog slipped in the last vignette.
