Folklore

By Streets

I’ve always been really inspired by Japanese culture and for a couple of weeks I was obsessed with old Asian ukiyo-e prints and Japanese folklore / fairy tales.

I drew these little characters live on Twitch, which was quite challenging because they’re a bit more detailed and colourful than my usual work. The dancing frogs illustration turned out to be one of my all time favourite drawings.

Jacques-Ouellette School Foundation

By Streets

Entirely devoted to pre-school, elementary and secondary education for blind and visually impaired students aged between 4 and 21, the Jacques-Ouellette School Foundation’s mission is to bring together the financial, human and material resources to support the school’s projects. We were mandated to establish the new positioning of the brand and to redesign its visual identity. This foundation is positioning itself as an agent of change giving its students the opportunity to fulfill their potential and evolve despite their handicap.

Playgrounds

By Streets

Over the last 2 years I?ve been commissioned to create broader animated loops by different clients. Generally these animated world – or better playgrounds – show a client-related theme, from a circulating island to a deep dark cave that resembles a universe. These playgrounds represent my love for animated repetition and blurring of boarders, up to the point that we don?t recognize a definite beginning or an end.

Toyota ‘Perspectives’ with Christian Schmidt

By Streets

A unique series from our archives this #throwbackthursday: 

‘Perspective Change’ for Toyota from Saatchi & Saatchi Düsseldorf is a car campaign without a car, from the earth’s point of view.

Photographer Christian Schmidt spent three weeks travelling with a small team to unique locations in Germany, Austria, Iceland, France and the Canary Islands. He shot all the photos with Phase One and Alpa SW cameras and a Leaf Aptus back using 23mm, 28mm and 35mm lenses ? ultra wide focal lengths on medium format.

For the first time ever, a complete issue of Stern magazine (which has a reach of 7.5 million readers in Germany) was booked by a single client for this campaign – the twelve images plus an interview and making-of.

The idea was to show “a different, changed perspective,” Schmidt says. “The view from the earth itself and to visualise the sensitivity for the earth, nature and world we are living in.”
