Carole Gautier and Eugénie Favre are My Name is Wendy, a French graphic design studio based in Paris whose work is characterised by an incredibly strong visual language. In D/I/M/E/N/S/I/O/N they created a series of posters in which they reinterpreted the familiar forms of letters, as objects.
On paper the idea is a familiar one, but the execution here sets it far apart from other typographic projects. Defined by strong geometric shapes filled with half-tone elements, vibrant colours and subtle gradient effects, each poster blurs the lines which once formed recognisable letters, to create something new and entirely unexpected; a flight of stairs emerges from the letter “M,” and an armchair from an “E." The project is abstract and striking, both characteristics which underpin MNisW’s practice. Very innovative stuff.
