We bang on a fair bit about how good documentation of creative work can be almost as important as the work itself. You might have produced the most typographically brilliant piece of print but if you’ve photographed it badly the outcome will inevitably be shit. But what about if you’ve got seven years’ worth of creative work to document; almost a decade of prolific visual communication? Well then you’re in trouble.
Unless you’re Parisian designer and art director Côme de Bouchony, in which case c’est facile! Côme’s just put together a quick video called 7 Years of Work in 1 Minute which does exactly what you’d imagine, whisking you quickly through print and digital projects, branding, identity and editorial design, all of which have been completed since 2007. It’s a simple idea executed beautifully, and even if you’re not into the work (you’ll LOVE the work) the soundtrack is an absolute delight. Je vous en prie.
