What is exciting you currently in the world of graphic design?

I enjoy the fact that graphic designers – students or professionals – are more and more concerned about the creative process of research and ideas, rather than focusing only on forms. I also appreciate the dynamics of collaborative projects. Pluridisciplinarity and interdisciplinarity in projects are increasing. I love the idea of dialogues, exchanges and confrontations – I think that today this is true of a lot of disciplines such as graphic design, literature, architecture, publishing, photography, art, history. Graphic designers are asking questions about their practice and their work. They are taking a new look at themselves, they are reassessing their position, and their role within the society they work in.

You have a strong interest in experimental publishing - what or who has caught your eye recently in this area?

I would say that The Serving Library by David Reinfurt, Stuart Bailey and Angie Keefer, is a reference.

Are you a fan of cinema?

Yes, I am indeed a big consumer of cinema – art films, but also entertainment movies: the purpose is different but I watch both for pleasure.

What are you reading?

I am now reading a book by art historian Erwin Panofsky called Early Netherlandish Painting (1953): fascinating.

What blogs are you looking at currently?

Alain Finkiel Krautrock Blogspot for music.

Seen any good exhibitions lately?

I'm recently back from Madrid so I would say my visit to the Prado permanent collection: Jérôme Bosch, Albrecht Dürer, Goya, Diego Vélasquez, Fra Angelico, Raphael... amazing.
