I’m just back from my annual trip to ISPO in Munich , where we displayed the ever-growing collection of black crows skis, in a bigger booth this year (which, incidentally, made it harder to photograph), with our new poles and beanies as well. We also had new displays and design details built using the shape of the logo…

A while back we played with the clichés of hard rock t-shirts with a design based on an Intersection cover by David Ledoux. This year we’re exploring the visual language of contemporary hipster-ish graphic design (countless electronic music flyers feature galaxies and thin geometric shapes…), but with a vehicular twist. We’re using an image Babette Pauthier shot for us, of the Lexus LF-LC concept, for a colorful t-shirt in partnership with Kulte.

Last week at colette in Paris, Lacoste revealed Lab L!VE, a project I worked on about a year ago, and it was nice to finally see the products we designed together shown to the general public. I was asked to create the visual identity for a new range of sporting goods, part of the L!VE sub-brand (of which I designed the logo a few years ago). I had already done the same for the Lacoste Lab range of objects, and it was exciting to get back to work with Christophe Pillet and his team. I went for a simple principle, using 3 colors for each object, in a very minimal way, which made for some unusual results on the balloons…
The window at colette:
The skateboard, with surf-like grip to ride barefoot:
I wanted 3 of the wood plys to match the colors of the board:
PVC crocodiles are (firmly) stuck on most of the objects:
The base of the snowboards has a die-cut logo, with the same color inserted in the puzzle-like shapes, for a tone-on-tone effect:
The sidewalls of the snowboards play with the 3-color principle:

I’m just back from Art Basel Miami Beach and of course I didn’t manage to see even half of what I had planned to see… but my favorite thing this year was the installation/performance by my friends Kolkoz. The french art duo, with the talented young curator Anissa Touati, set up a beach soccer tournament… with a twist.
Over the course of 3 days, teams of artists, curators, gallery owners and art critics competed on the beach, trying to score goals on a highly challenging terrain, an exact reproduction of the lunar terrain where Apollo 11 landed.
It looked very tiring… here you can spot JR with his hat, giving his best:

Until recently Julie Rouby worked with us at Intersection Magazine France, and even if it’s not the case anymore, we keep in touch, if only to exchange news about the amazing kitten I gave her, Shuffle…
She’s also the the proud owner of this 1982 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL:
