Viajes el Corte Ingles by Thomas Danthony

A stunning new campaign by Thomas Danthony sees El Corte Inglés using illustration to promote their sixty plus cruise holidays. It’s so refreshing to see older people portrayed in a glamorous way and illustration was a bold choice by the client, which really paid off. Thomas did a wonderful job of evoking the classic era of travel posters and portraying stylish senior citizens.

Siempre Playa - Malika Favre

“Siempre Playa” was a residency project curated by Futura design studio in Mexico city last june. The concept was simple : to send 4 illustrators, including our own Malika Favre, to Playa del Carmen for a week to get inspired and create a series of "carte blanche” works inspired by Mexico and the tropical coastline. 

Malika shared with us her thoughts on the trip and the experience: "What struck me first was the intensity of the colours around me and this incredible and luxurious vegetation and I immediately knew I wanted nature to have a role in my upcoming series. I spent a a week exploring my surroundings with the 3 other illustrators, Violeta, Kitty and Catalina but also Glenda was was documenting the trip. More than the place itself I decided to illustrate the human experience and to dedicate each piece to one of the girls I spent that week with."

The resulting work is a series of four tropical pieces, inspired by the places she saw and the things they did, but mostly as she describes them "the incredible women I met."

The prints are now available as limited edition prints here.

A Little Film About... Hey - Behind the Scenes

Last month film director Jérôme de Gerlache set about shooting his second film in our 'Little Film About...' series. Following on from his hugely successful film about Malika Favre, Jérôme's new subject was the Barcelona based design studio Hey. 

The resulting film is a gorgeously colourful affair in which founding partner Verònica Fuerte talks about her passions and design influences and reveals some of the secrets behind the studio's success. Here's some shoots from behind the scenes and you can watch the film here. A big thanks to Pascal Boudet for the excellent photos.
