Moving forward creatively

The beginning of this year has been shocking and dramatic. Those who have left Charlie would have wished us to keep on smiling, moving forward and helping each other to roll our sleeves up. Obviously, we had to pay them tribute in this newsletter.

This month, 15 illustrators of the creative clinic pay tribute to the team of Charlie Hebdo.
Also, Alex Pham has arrived and she's already an ultra dynamic and smiling agent at the Montreal office. Edward makes pictograms for a new branding. Benoît " unleashes the beast " for the Architects Association of Quebec. David thinks about rugby for GQ. Ëlodie invites herself in Galleries Lafayette for Airbnb. And, as every month, discover the best of creative clinic below.
