PAULA SCHER

Paula Scher, famous designer from the unforgettable Pentagram studio, shares the most common mistakes she sees designers make on branding projects.

It’s always good to listen masters advices.

PAPER (HI)STORY

« The essence of papermaking remains relatively unchanged since its development thousands of years ago. Pulp, or wet plant matter, is mashed and beaten until the long strands of fiber begin to separate. The pulp is run through a mesh, on top of which the fibers weave together to form a natural tapestry. This sheet of wet pulp is couched, or pressed off against another surface, where it is left to dry, usually under some combination of heat and pressure. »

CREATIVE SUPPORT

Since the beginning of the lockdown, I have seen some great ideas coming from creatives around the world.

Here are 2 nice ones :

1. The french fashion brand ETUDES, has created a special shop called YES FUTURE with great photographies taken by well-known and unknown talented photographers.
( Camille Vivier, Audrey Corregan, Ana Kras, Charles Nègre, Estelle Hanania, Image Group, Jonas Lindstroem… )
All proceeds to foundation against COVID-19 👏

2. Some special posters tribute to NHS have been created by London studios : Koto, Pentagram, Two times Elliott.
They appear in a new charitable set of Layers mock-ups, which designers can buy to demonstrate their projects, with 100% of sales donated to NHS Charities together. 👏

MODERN HERALDRY 2

Happy to take part in this new book published by the great Counter Print.
Three of my logos have been featured : Ambassade des Arts / Maison Sandro / Fantastic Villa Marzipan.

The logo designs within this new book are grouped under category headings chosen for their heraldic connotations.
The categories included are shields, crests, stamps, seals, laurels, flags and crowns – considered to be the most popular in contemporary heraldic designs.
