Like most designers that have graduated from the Rietveld Academie, Aude Debout knows her way round the business end of a grid and has a serious talent for creating beautiful publications that range from the intellectually challenging to the plain bizarre. Whether she’s explaining the role of the MacGuffin throughout the history of western storytelling or celebrating contemporary furniture designers Vitra, Aude’s guaranteed to produce something incredible looking (check out the typographic saddle-stitching in one of his projects for proof).
For now though, let’s just all take a moment to enjoy Fat Fat Club, a wilfully childish and utterly brilliant collaboration with Caroline Lollo, that imagines how the gluttonous and obese might see the world. There’s asparagus protruding from buildings, a cheesecake-topped White House and pastries coming out of everything. It’s a little like how we feel at lunch-time, but much more ambitious.
