CHRISTMAS CARD FOR LE BRISTOL



Christmas card  for Le Bristol, the parisian palace. An hommage to the painted menu and ephemera of Versailles. The card takes the shape of shadow box, creating a theater like setting for the facade of the Hotel where Paris is the stage.

The card is filled of references to Le Bristol from Fa-raon playing ontop of paulownia leaves to cornucopias and unicorns hidden in the cards.

LA JONCHERE : DESIGNING A COAT OF ARMS A FRENCH VILLAGE 



It’s not often you get asked to design a coat of arms. Even less often when it’s your family village. La Jonchère is a small village nested in Limousin. The design process digs deep into the long History of the place : from the celtic Lemovices tribe, the medieval town and fortifications of the Bishop of Limoges that were detroyed by the Black prince, to the Arboterum, one of the major acclimatization garden in France.

The coat of arms is an ode the early time of Heraldry with a cut from clothe pattern, that can be easily reproduced and applied throughout the village.
