World Press Photo

More than half of the planned World Press Photo exhibitions were cancelled or postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our answer was to create an online exhibition in order to make the incredible stories available for viewers all over the world.

The exhibition is laid out into a timeline with 42 photographers, 3 Long term Projects and 9 digital storytelling. We added exclusive videos of the jury and audio interviews from the photographers. This project was made with Samira Damato and the additional help of Max Franklin & Kamil. [2021]

École d'Art d'Aix-en-Provence

The École supérieure d'art d'Aix-en-Provence is a higher arts education and research school in the south of France.

The web design is based on the school's new graphic charter designed by Angela Detanico and Rafael Lain. Their visual language highlights the lines that make up the name of the city AIX as well as a choice of colours inspired by the four seasons of the year.

For the website we decided to extend the chromatic range to 35 predefined shades. This precise colour chart allows both a rigorous control of the visible colours, combined with the flexibility offered by their combinations to dress the pages of the site. The combinations ensure a levelled contrast between the text and the background colour. The strokes of the letters X from the logo are used in the background to reinforce the visual identity. The shaded lines accompany the visitor during their navigation, and their colour changes according to the latest events, as does the logo at the top of the page.

Coordinated by Sophie Kerlaux, communication officer and Christian Merlhiot, director of the establishment. [2020]

Print/Press was realized in collaboration with Oliver Barstow, supported by PublishingLab and launched at De Monsterkamer, Amsterdam.

The contributing artists are, from January to December: Oliver Barstow, João Roxo, Carla Saunders, Karina Zavidova, Juan Pablo Mejía, Anastasia Kubrak, Loïc Drussel-Martzolf, Imad Gebrayel, Cristina Cochior, Anna Michalak, Théo Goedert & Nadine Rotem-Stibbe. [2018]

Bureau des Guides

The 'Guide Bureau' (BDG) proposes and animates projects and activities around walking in peri-urban areas by associating artists, walkers and citizens. They also maintain the initiative of the GR2013, a 365 km metropolitan trail imagined and marked out on the occasion of MP13.

For the European Heritage Days, the BDG organized walks in the footsteps of Walter Benjamin in Marseille. Their space on the canebière was the starting point for the walks and the place for which we designed the scenography supporting information for walkers and a wider public.

We designed the scenography with custom-made furniture, covered the ground with gravel to give an impression of exteriority to the interior space, and covered the walls with printed infographics.

A collaboration with Christine Breton, historian, Jean Christofol, philosopher, the BDG team and the Cabanon Vertical. [2018]
