Contemporary Designers in France

This bilingual issue focuses on a selection of contemporary graphic designers based in France. Although they do not represent a formal movement, they share a more fluid, experimental approach to graphic design that enables the creation of an authentic visual language and the collaboration with other like-minded collectives.
