GRAPHIC DESIGN

Ella Paleni – Trait de caractère

with Guy Meldem, Gilles Gavillet

The place of the graphic designer in the age of technological advances: today’s world is in constant technological evolution, which raises questions about the place and role of the graphic designer. In this graduation project, I set out to explore this issue by adopting a resolutely manual and artisanal approach. I created a book from A to Z, using traditional manufacturing techniques, from the elaboration of the paper to the final binding. By moving away from the omnipresent process of digitalisation, I sought to express a need to return to the very essence of the graphic design profession. This project highlights the advantages of an artisanal approach in an increasingly digital world. It encourages reflection on the specific skills that graphic designers can bring to the table.

Dialogue

Dialogue

with Gilles Gavillet & Jonathan Hares

Mapping Workshop - Nature morte

Mapping Workshop - Nature morte

with Florian Pittet, Clément Lambelet, Eric Morzier

The first year students in Graphic Design and Media & Interaction Design and Photography worked on mapping projects.

Lost Records

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Lost Records

with Ronny Hunger

Sometimes you don’t know that something has been lost — until it’s found again. How many brilliant lost, neglected and forgotten artists can there be? How many albums have been forgotten? How many have been lost? How many were rejected by labels because of political content, critical album artworks or band names? How many didn’t make it through a release and were eliminated or shelved for lack of success? How many dreams, hopes and statements were destroyed? We found 8 of these forgotten albums and worked on the record cover artworks, we tried to catch the mystical mood of these lost recordings, we tried to capture this forgotten music and tried to tell these incredible stories.
