New Business Card
Thanks to great advices during interviews, I have decided to redesign new business cards and new stationery for my CV and letters. Going back to the essential of Graphic Design: strong, honest and uncomplicated communication.

WWF Earth Hour
Last month, WWF launched a call for young creative to design an Earth Hour poster which would feature in their 2014 ad campaign. The above poster was my suggestion to encourage people to reduce the heating in their home.

Flowers of Evil
A study of the relationship between nature and poetry, light and typography. Extract from The Flowers of Evil, Mists and Rains by Charles Baudelaire.
"O ends of autumn, winters, springtimes drenched with mud,
Seasons that lull to sleep! I love you, I praise you
For enfolding my heart and mind thus
In a misty shroud and a filmy tomb.
On that vast plain where the cold south wind plays,
Where in the long, dark nights the weather-cock grows hoarse,
My soul spreads wide its raven wings
More easily than in the warm springtide.
Nothing is sweeter to a gloomy heart
On which the hoar-frost has long been falling,
Than the permanent aspect of your pale shadows,
O wan seasons, queens of our clime
— Unless it be to deaden suffering, side by side
In a casual bed, on a moonless night.”
Translation: William Aggeler, The Flowers of Evil (Fresno, CA: Academy Library Guild, 1954)
