Graphic Design: Côme de Bouchony lends his skills to a ghetto museum

Posted by James Cartwright,

The ever-brilliant Côme de Bouchony has just got himself a brand spanking new website up and running, there to display his self-designed creations to the world with superior style. It’s full of Côme’s predictably delicious work, old projects and new. But we thought it’d be nice to look back at an old one that’s never appeared on the site, The Comptoir Général Ghetto Museum.

What The Comptoir Général is is pretty hard to define; part events space, part library, part educational facility, part shop, and the tone of their website would imply they don’t take themselves all that seriously (they list their clients as AXA, Credit Agricole, Danone, Michelin, Nike, France 2, Arte, Maison Martin Margiela, Liberation, Because Music, Yann Arthus-Bertrand). Whatever exactly their game is, Côme has given them a visual identity that’s as intriguing as the shop itself, which is no mean feat.
