Le Clan Pompeux – Wood Prints


As I had mentioned earlier this summer, I am planning on launching a new series of prints and tees available for purchase (thanks for your patience) and in preparation, I wanted to share my original post to serve as the clam and pleasant post, before the storm! :) Here you go… First of all, I want to thank you all for the great response, great comments and wonderful emails I’ve received. It only pushes me to work harder, improve and learn new things! Since my last identity project for Locos Por Juana (post here) , I noticed many of you, like me, enjoy seeing the whole process and work behind a finished project. So, today I want to share one of my latest adventures. Although this was a personal project/experiment at first, it has evolved into something bigger that I will soon share with you. Hope you enjoy it!

The making of ‘Hot Cakes’

TheeBlog-TheDarkness_HotCakes People usually ask what are the most important sources of inspiration and elements ‘creatives’ rely on when working on projects and I’ve always considered Music to be an essential tool. As a music lover I am stoked to share today’s post, featuring The Darkness, a british band that I’ve been a fan of since 2002, and their newest album called ‘Hot Cakes’. I had the great pleasure of chatting with Rob Chenery, Creative Director of London based agency TOURIST about the ‘making of’ the band’s provocative album cover. This one is a special Friday treat as we’ll enjoy some exclusive behind the scenes photos and the creative process behind this project. Happy Friday!
