Valentin Bigel and Alice Gavin are Clap Clap Club, a European design studio that move their operations between London and Paris with the occasional soujourn in Berlin. Their practice focusses heavily on the manipulation and distortion of typographic forms and playing fast and loose with complex grid systems – the products of which are extremely visually engaging.
Recent work for Variable Geometry, a show organised by Super Window Project in Reims, France has seen them produce a selection of 55 unique posters, in collaboration with architecture office La Ville Rayée, that take identical pieces of layout and reshape them to reveal morphing geometric forms that emerge from the negative space between texts. The legibility is often compromised but the identity is instantly recognisable no matter which iteration of the poster you encounter.
