Tout Graphisme!workshopCentre Georges PompidouStudio 13/162014.09
Studio 13/16, a space for teenagers at Centre Pompidou, dedicated a month of workshops on graphic design: Tout graphisme !.
Amongst being part of one of them on making posters: Le Hasard fait bien les choses , we were also approached to materialized a full month of other workshops and to deal with the archive of all productions made.

We developed a website that would turned images produced by the teenagers during the various workshops into digital posters.
They were randomly generated using various image libraries: graphic elements from others designers organizing workshops, fonts, various infos, and mostly the productions from the teenagers.

It was then screened in an installation we produced in the window of the studio — it also combined instructions and explanations over big posters we designed as well.

To enlarge the spectre of possibilities, we gathered posters from others designers and we organized a wild exhibition within the space.

L’incroyable O-ismeworkshopESAA - DuperréDSAA fashion2016.01
We decided to invite the students to participate to a project we got commissioned in the meantime by L’Incroyable Magazine for the next issue on american artist Jim Shaw.
We got given a wild card to produce a series of images on one of his project : O-ism.

Over 5 days, we asked the students to produce the iconography of that cult O-ism as if we were creating its Google image. Their production was ranging from corporate logos and signs, TV shows, objects of cult, the writing of its mythology, a hotline, #, etc… as if they were the first adepts.

It was commissioned by Artist Ève Chabanon for a workshop she did with students from At. Carrosserie (bodywork) in Aubervilliers. The students added a request and asked us to design the logo of their workshop.

FutureworkshopFréquence SchoolENSAAMA2016.05
Students from different high schools were asked to design posters to introduce their themes of research on the eco-city of the future over a final presentation to other students and professors.

We designed a tool they used to generate posters by associating 2 images they would pick from a library of images we previously produced and they could edit some text options.

The point was to consider the third meaning generated by associating images that had no link at first.

TalebotappSalon bureau chambreTalebot2016.09
Talebot is a tool that works as a search engine connecting people on specific topics.

We got involved a couple of years ago after Salon bureau chambre (David Apheceix) invited us to join the project team with Pierre Garnier to work together on the design of Talebot, especially on the graphic development. Since then, we have participated in questioning the whole idea of what it means to create an other connecting tool and to hijack the habits of social uses.
