Agendas for YouTube Create, Cannes


Here is more imagery from my commission for YouTube for Cannes Lions 2014.  The work pictured are the digitally printed agendas for the event.  The A4 sized works were designed so that they could be playfully rolled to form a toy telescope (as modelled by my number one helper and eldest son), something I thought perfect for the island setting looking back across the sea to Cannes and the French mainland.

Signage for YouTube Create in Cannes

Here are more images of the art work I created for YouTube Create for the Cannes Lions Festival 2014.  These were the signs that were installed around the YouTube event.  The brief was to create something that looked like driftwood to work with the surroundings.  Take a look here and here for them in situ in Cannes plus a very special picture here with Scooter Braun and Jerry Katzenberg talking in front of one.

YouTube Create Commission for Cannes Lions, France


Over the coming days I will be posting pictures of my commission for YouTube as part of the Cannes Lions Festival in France.  I have been very lucky to create a number of art works and designs for YouTube, including the invites, print works, signage, flags, badges and agendas.  Here are the first images of my letterpress invite in production at the wonderful Typoretum.  A huge thanks is extended to them for such a beautiful job.  The invites are a combination of letterpress, foil blocking and blind emboss on a 700gsm Colorplan paper.  I look forward to sharing more later this week.
