Hello hello

Bonjour bonjour

:­)

From Mali to la ville lumière, you can now find us having a café crème in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, near the Musée de la Bible et Terre Sainte.

We hope you are still as excited as we are!

;­)

Yesterday, all of you made some very nice masks.

Some of them simple, some funny, some complex, some strange…

Perfect!

Are you having fun?

That’s the most important part!

 

Today’s mission may seems a little bit complicated, but it is not.

Just keep calm, and keep it simple too!

 

As Einstein would say:

“Everything must be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”

 

;­)

 

Do you know what a “diptych” is?

Today, we’ll make one.

Learn more in our letter.

 

By the way, are you already part of our Design1o1 Arena?

Lots going on over there, please take a look!

 

Kiss Kiss // Love Love

Kathryn Carter that managed our Pinterest account with Monica Georgescu, Claire Bolsen and the help of Carmen Alicia Coto, Gaby Ga and Claudia Aguirre,

Aristotelis Triantis that provide us all with a very cool make up for our community page
and Samantha Vandeyar that was there, every time.

Ernest Hemingway

friday (095/101)

Dear all,

Every nice journey needs to come to an end.
Our journey’s “end” together needs to be a special one: one to remember…
For this reason, we celebrate it with a fancy exhibition.

:-)

On April 23, there will be the opening of #MyZine1o1 exhibition at the new “BASE”, in Milan.
What will be on show?
Your magazines!

:-)

Are you ready for the show? How to ship your magazine?
Where do you put the stamp? Where do you write the shipping address?
How do you “seal” the whole? You will actually need to send 3 of them to Milan…

😮

This is the last task of the week “MyThing”.
Learn more in today’s letter, go on, evaluate the whole and decide what is best.
One last push…
Go!
See you on instagram!

:-)

Kiss Kiss Love Love
Chahrazed, Anna, Cristina, Miri & the Design 1o1 Crew.

wednesday (093/101)

hello hello,

today is (almost) all about binding!

 

binding is maybe not for all, but even if you chose to make another type of magazine,

please read our letter!

 

at the end, you will learn the importance of evaluating yourself, improving and repeating.

again and again and again.

 

:- )

 

by the way, have you seen how cool today’s video is?

we can’t stop playing it again and again and again..

 

thank you very much Anne-Sophie for showing us your how-to! brilliant!

we are looking forward to meeting you in Milan and work together for our #Zine1o1 Design 1o1 Redux exhibition + spring camp

 

see you!

tuesday (092/101)

dears,

greetings from Savoy Restaurant, greetings from Helsinki

:- )

you know, design is about understanding the complete series of solutions to a given task:
hence understanding where you are in the series (and never forgetting that eventually, good is better than original design)

find this and that and much more in our letter.

:- )

we found many beautiful references on instagram. thank you for sharing them!

one thing to keep in mind: a “magazine” should be easily reproducible. imagine you have to make 25 copies of it… would it be possible in a “relatively” short amount of time?

we strongly suggest you to go for the quick, the fast, the simple, the smart!

:-)

see you on instagram: keep on pushing!
