IAbout
MNISWI
My Name is wendy was born in 2006 from the collaboration of two graphic designers, Carole Gautier and Eugénie Favre.
This collaboration unites expertise in graphic and plastic art. The group produces visual identities, typefaces, formal principals, pictures, patterns and printings. A project is first of all an encounter gathering competences and mutual ethics.



  Moreover, the Group produces a limited number of sized posters and can use different platforms within plastic realizations to satisfy its needs for expression.

«Our relationship with forms is essential, we wish to create them with cogency and expression.»



  Depuis 2006, le studio crée des identités graphiques, des projets éditoriaux, des typographies ainsi que des contenus illustrés. Nous travaillons pour le secteur culturel, l’univers de la mode et de la musique ainsi que pour les entreprises.

  L’association de nos deux cursus (graphique et plastique) nous permet de développer un design contemporain à la fois singulier, construit, rigoureux et inventif.

Nous créons des identités graphiques en apportant un soin particulier à la typographie, Ce qui nous amène à créer des lettrages uniques et originaux.



  Nous renouvelons nos réponses visuelles afin de respecter la richesse et la singularité d’un lieu, d’un événement, d’un projet ou d’une personnalité.
Nous ne travaillons pas pour mais avec un commanditaire qui nous confie un projet. Cette collaboration, basée sur la confiance, la discussion, le contact et le partage des compétences, est garante d’un projet abouti et réflexif.

We are self-identifying women who have come together to share, learn, and reinvent.

ExhibitionI

Take Five / 26.11 - 12.12.2015
Laura Llaneli / art3

A project that has its start point in the Jazz song
Take Five from David’s Brubeck quartet.
«The project is a new version of the drum score of this song,
doing a translation from the drum kit parts into french words:
RIDE, CRASH, GROSSE CAISSE, CAISSE CLAIRE, TOM, TOM BASSE, CHARLES.
With recorded voices from a french MC (hip hop) Madame Bert,
and a French a capella singer, Christoph, the song is a new composition with words,
more proximate to poetry. « Text : Laura Llaneli / art3

- 28 posters were composed from the screenshots used by Laura for her composition.
These ‘posters/partitions’ were constructed from a grid
and a visual code which represent 7 parts of drums.
- 7 posters relate to the score.
These are visual transpositions of the ‘sound impact’ of 7 instruments.
The exhibition organized by art3, was held on 26 november to 12 december 2015
at the square Jeanne de Flandreysy Valence. The printout of posters was made by ENSBA Lyon.

Posters / Exhibition
Project «Always want the space to reappear».
art3, a non-profit organisation, has developed a program of events related to experimental projects.
Exhibitions are organised at art3 and eslwhere with various partners.
These exhibitions reflect the diversity of present day artistic creation. Direction : Sylvie Vojik
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of art3, 16 posters are based on a repeated graphic module.
It’s an emergence of a shape in a process of duplication, movement or proliferation until it is exhausted,
There are insertions within layers that create micro-differences in the density and transparency.
This principle stages a “ghostly” module and creates a temporality through the succession of areas/surfaces.

«Wendy could be a tribute to the wife of Jack Torrance
or a reminder of one of the characters of JM Barrie,
otherwise the vague memory of a heroine series B.
But Wendy Wendy called because there is a film Dear Wendy,
who speaks of the obsession with firearms,
and therefore the first test sentence was: Just a shot.»
