Bouffes Du Nord Theater 19-20

The parisian institution Le Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord commissioned us for its identity of season 19 / 20. We worked on a bespoke typeface, posters and programs. This year, the wish of the theater management was for us to work from old photographies of Theater comedians from late 19th century. Coming from the personal archives of Le Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord director. The project was to mix paintings and black and white photographies, as an extension of the work we started in 2015 on our “L’Empreinte du geste” project. We used differents mediums to create a chromatic scale, pigments, ink, watercolor… Thanks to our talented assistant Clothilde Carton who helped us very much with the paintings. Secondary Types : Totentanz {Extrabrut}, Italian old style.
