Les Graphicants are a Paris-based design studio and collective who create advertisements and posters for some of the most famous cultural and artistic institutions in France. They have designed several posters for the Centre Pompidou, publicizing their large-scale special exhibitions, as well as several posters for the Ballet, Paris Metro, and other exhibitions and shows. Their design point-of-view is clean, bold, and minimal, using digital collage techniques and a primarily black-and-white palette to create eye-catching compositions. (Trendland)
It’s no secret that I love to all things French, but to see the French do beautiful design other than fashion– now that’s just hitting my soft side. They seem to breath a different kind of experimental life into their work. At the moment, I’m very fixated on the idea of printing, then framing some of my favourite design posters alongside with abstract artwork and black and white photography. I would do all this in a heart beat, but I would have to find a new home where I am permitted to drill holes into the wall…until then.
