From the quality and finesse of his work, it’s hard to believe graphic designer Axel Pelletanche is still studying, currently completing his MA in design and typography at Paris’ École Estienne. With a very impressive portfolio of work across book design, posters and type design. Aside from the work displaying a mature and brave graphic sensibility, where Axel excels is in the presentation of his work, showing a knack for documentation in playful scans of the book work.
We first featured Axel’s work when he was but a nipper last spring, and from the looks of things he has a very bright future ahead of him indeed.
