Because Pantone did a good thing here with this ad, I’m and delighted the 13 million people have already discovered that. (Although, I’m curious why it took me over a month to discover it. Sorry. Wait – NOT sorry!) This one hits close to home, and I for one aim to change my ways.
These amazing environmental graphics were designed by Paris-based Sébastien M for the the School of Environmental Management & Engineering (EME), located just outside of Rennes, France. They have a kind of retro vibe (well, if you consider the ’80’s retro), that feels current without being contrived. It’s a feat to design something that’s both youthfully relevant and deftly sophisticated; yet he’s accomplished just that. Bravo!
Halfway through my vacation, I find myself blissed out in Provence; soaking up rays, sipping rosé, surrounded by people I adore. I think this instrumental (yes, it’s borderline muzak, but i don’t care) from my favorite French group captures the mood nicely. Le Soleil est près de moi (“The Sun Is Near Me”) by Air, from the album of the same name, 1997.
