It’s difficult sometimes to know how to pitch the announcement of a new studio being set up, but we feel that more designers should follow the example of Julien Vallée and Eve Duhamel. The longtime collaborators have launched Vallée Duhamel and to help publicise the news, they’ve created this excellently violent little video. Rather than a bland celebration of creative harmony, the pair are seen attacking each other with everything from a fish to a piece of watermelon.
But if the video is delightfully silly the work is seriously good; from gorgeous visuals for the Misteur Valaire album to a hand-crafted cover for the Financial Times Weekend Magazine’s recent graphics special. The coming together of two such talented creatives can only lead to good things. That and fish fights, obviously…
