F*ck you blan! Was one of the first greetings I received in Haiti after landing on, what it seemed like, a pitch black airport patched up with plywood and corrugated tin sheets lined with armed guards giving every non-black passengers that sticky peanut butter look. Walk out of the immigration gates and you’re greeted by burly Haitian men squabbling over who’s going to grab your suitcase. So I did the most logical thing I could think of: run like Cinderella on crack! Those were my first memories of Haiti...
Clients are creatures of habit. The funny thing with creatures of habit is that if you present them with something different (as is always the case when you do creative work) they’re apprehensive to accept it or they downright reject it. As is the case with one of the best calendars I designed for Rhum Barbancourt.
Bombard's Body Language YouTube channel was terminated. For what reason? Wrong think. I'm highly concerned, when will the witch hunt stop? When will the inquisition stop? Who's next? Maybe it's you!
Don't agree, should she be banned? You be the judge of her content: here's her website.
Belrad Laundry detergent packaging design and logo design was one of those nice graphic design projects that I worked on, not because I like detergents, but mostly because the client was agreeable and willing to compromise. The client listened to my design advice and gave me creative freedom. Of course, within limits of his requirements. When client and graphic designers compromise, designs come out nice and everybody is happy.
P’tite Saveur logo and packaging design is one of those weird jobs that I got in my career as a graphic designer at a design firm. The client wanted a Middle-Age design that looks modern. He was adamant in using gothic-looking fonts and velum on the design. One problem... the Middle-Ages isn't exactly modern... I took the challenge.
Max Bill is the most famous Bauhaus student. Other than being an influential 20th century graphic designer, sculptor, architect, industrial designer, politician, teacher, silversmith, rector and the principal figure of Concretism, he also designed a watch befitting any designer’s wrist or the wrists of those who knows how to appreciate great designs—the Junghans Max Bill. I will not go into an in-depth review of this timepiece. You can find that elsewhere. We’ll discuss why choose Junghans Max Bill, especially if you’re a designer.

Ok, that’s the TL; DR version. I suggest you click the button below and read more about this very, very interesting designer.
When I launched this website, someone asked me, “why don’t you write everything in lowercase you’re a great designer, right?” This is actually a very good question. To which I had a very good answer that is worth the tale.
To understand the significance of this lowercase question, we need to dig into 1900s Germany. Into the movement that first had the idea of what design is. Interested in a long story time? Read on! TL; DR be damned!
Composing photos is like any designing task. The difference is, in photography the main elements that you control are your camera and you. Photography is an art. There are no rigid “rules” when it comes to creating art, only best practices and principles. Most of these principles are called “rules”, but in practice, they’re more like guidelines.
