After today, my posts will be based on my days abroad in Paris (so in a sense, it will temporarily turn into a travel blog haha). My plane leaves tomorrow and I cannot tell you enough how excited I am to get over there. My posts will probably be short, as they usually are, due to my limited time in the day I’ll have to be online and because I’m a person of few words (I do poorly when I try to explain something in depth). Anyhow, today I’ve got some french entertainment designs to share.

Below are two movie posters for french films:

Different styles, but interesting nonetheless.

I also discovered recently that the French love graffiti and street art. One such artist I stumbled upon is JR- a french artist who displays his work publicly in some of the largest cities by mounting enormous black and white photos onto (most of the time unauthorized) spaces. He calls it the largest exhibit in the world.

Pretty astounding and profound… If you love his work and would like to see more of his universal work, follow this link > JR Photos

And I’ll see you all in Europe!

As I inch nearer my trip over seas, I’ll be posting more relevant posts of that culture. As many of you know (if not all), Paris is a place where cafes are focal points for socializing, working, and for relaxing. You can practically find one at every corner of every street and easily sit with a cup of coffee and light sandwich or croissant while chatting, surfing the web, reading, or even thinking.

Because coffee is such a large part of french culture (just as wine accompanies most meals, coffee is almost always usually ordered at the end of a meal), I want to share some designs for a coffee shop branding. These come from one of my favorite graphic design studios, A-Side, which is set in the UK. This particular branding is for Origin Coffee.

Origin’s coffee cups. Simple, professional, and clean. The bottom one is more playful and colorful but still retains its elegance with its languid lines and muted color palette.

And a breath-taking flyer that would definitely grab my attention as soon as I set eyes on it.
