perso/ november 7th (2012) / 11.12 PM / from Bali

SND CYN Studios & Ty Mattson CBS posters
interior / novembre 5th (2012) / 10.21 PM / from Ubud - Bali
Already one month and half in Bali and I love it (specially as I can go to Singapore)... But what I miss is a big nice office. We always want we don't have... I was luck to visit Ty Mattson studio last year, and it was really inspiring... and he brings it to another level... It present it well, so just have to quote him :
Mattson Creative is a small design firm, by design. The only downside of running a boutique studio is that you really don’t need that much space to do it. I’ve always wanted to work in a big, ultra-creative office – an inspiring environment, teeming with interesting people, doing inspiring work. But I’ve never wanted to manage the number of employees that would necessitate a studio of that size. My passion is design, not management. I wanted the energy, community and culture of a large creative agency…I just didn’t want the agency.
So I set out to create the type of office that I wanted to work in, and I invited my friends and colleagues to join me. It turns out that they were looking for the same thing I was: a unique environment and a creative community. I decided to expand our existing space in Old Town Irvine into a collaborative workspace for creative professionals. We filled it quickly and now the space is home to artists, designers, photographers, producers and developers. And I get to go to work everyday with my friends. We call it SND CYN Studios – which is derived from our address on Sand Canyon Avenue.
All summer we’ve been working on the building– a 125 year-old former lima bean factory – reimagining and redesigning the interior into a one-of-a-kind creative workspace – and we’re almost finished. Stay tuned to my blog for more pictures as we finalize the studio. It’s exciting to see it coming together.
Some pictures of this amazing space.
Earlier this year, design a poster series that CBS commissioned for their corporate office in LA.
As I am working on mr-cup.com, it will also includes an updated version of my portfolio. Among new projects, are this picture of my artist friend Olivier Guirault. I love his work, and sadly he is not a "web" guy, so I HAVE the show his work... My aim is to inspires you, as much as he inspires me... His also the owner (and seller now) of the house I present here and design a web site for. When we shot the picture of him drawing (last year, as you can see the christmas tree on the back), we have a great time listening to an old Genesis album... I send a free wood letter if you guess which album it was...
Two Arms Inc.
Strange to see NY area like this, hope everybody is safe and have not too much damages... When I see the work and products of Two Arms Inc. New York studio, I this it was appropriate... Tonight is Halloween, hope everybody can celebrate...

MrCup Helvetica WOOD letters final / MrCup launch date annoucement
I am really please to show you the pictures of the Helvetica Wood letters in their final packaging, sillscreen fabric bags... As there are 2 collection, one in suar wood, the other in recycled color teck wood, both bags are differents too... All the recycled collection letters have different colors, I will show you more soon.
www.mr-cup.com will be launch on november 12th, this is the date we fixed with my developer... So, it will be on 12.11.12... It will present new projects in my portfolio, new stickers in the shop, and a new blog... with ads... yes, but not usual ads... I want them to be more a complement of the content of the blog, and if it can help me to visit more studios to do special post, I had too... And the wood letters will be on sell too, of course...
So for all who asked, no letterpress calendar this year... Sorry but it was fun to do the 2 issues, but my life is different now, and I want to focus on new things...
