The project was launched by Mrs Cécile Longé, Consul General, as well as Mr Paoli the French Ambassador, in the in the beautiful premises of the Résidence des Pins.
Navleb created the app, I designed the logo, brochure, and all the branding in the following pictures, and printing + production was handled by the super helpful pressrilis.
As you can see, for the video presentation, we integrated a plasma screen in the giant flex banner behind Mrs Longé.
Another branding option for conferences containing more multimedia is a giant LED screen like this 14 x 4 m one we created for LFA's BIFEX last year, where you could insert the speaker's presentation, a live video cam and the twitter feed for example:
I love the work behind branding conferences because it could go from the smallest detail like a name tag to art directing the whole show, and I'm really grateful to the French Consulate for giving me this chance!
Don't get me wrong, I was one of many to be disappointed by Depp & Paradis' break up two years ago... However at that same period I had a kind of premonition when I first saw this beautiful clip by Benjamin Biolay "Aime mon amour"; Somehow I found in the sensual Karole Rocher (actor and director of this clip) a very "troublante"resemblance with Vanessa Paradis:
Biolay, who looks a lot like Benicio Del Toro but with an amazing sexy voice, has aways been on my "cream of the crop"... (here with Julie Gayet (currently at l'Elysée, which is funny since the rumor says he also was with Bruni after Chiara Mastroianni) )
He also has an incredible and immense talent as a singer and writer and he did work previously with Paradis. But when she launched the "Love songs" album and tour, their collaboration was sky rocketing and it was obvious there was a lot more going on... that they did confirm recently.
Which bring us to what I wanted to say, Vanessa is now a 40 something woman, but in my eyes she is now hotter than ever, hotter that than she was with Depp, hotter than when she was with Lenny Kravitz , and somehow "la boucle est bouclée" since at the very beginning of her career Gainsbourg wrote for her, and now she is the muse of Biolay, the "digne" successor of Gainsbourg...
Just have a look and judge by yourselves:
I finish off with eye & ear candy; their sensuous latest single "Pas besoin de permis", enjoyyyy....
This post means that I took too much weeks off from blogging, and I'm here to fix that!
I've got a lot to show you and will try to do that at least once very week.
Let's start with the new RJ catalogue for which I worked on the concept and art direction:
Warm colors, lots of blue, black and navy denim, as well as a lovely sweater collection...
I was lately asked to direct a 2 day photoshoot for the famous business school ESA and it was quite challenging since we were working with the real students during the real classes. What we did was integrating a few faces in the front rows, whom we casted amidst the students and school personnel.
Photos were shot by Imad El Khoury, brochures were created by the talented Nay Elian, and Art Direction by myself.
