Hermès workshops in Nontron, just up the road from here, are where the Kelly and Birkin handbags are made. Also in Nontron, CWD saddlery, No.1 in France and a world market leader, equips the French London Olympics winning team.
And La Coutellerie Nontronnaise makes its famous knives in its Philippe Starck & Luc Arsène-Henri designed workshops.
Designed in the Sud-Ouest is an overwhelming success!

The old cubic thing was really just a joke. So 60's, so unrelated to an upmarket department store, so 'heavy construction company'... so irrelevant! It amazed me every day I went past it. Just very disappointing to see that the new identity by Publicis Royalties is so characterless, bland and 'passe partout', it could be used for anything and it says absolutely nothing about the very unique BHV. Shame, a missed opportunity.

Talking tourism, France is the worlds No.1 destination in terms of visitor numbers at 33m, but tourism income is half that spent each day in the UK and a third of that spent in the USA. And Paris (12.92m visitors) has now slipped to the world's 3rd most popular city after 2nd London (15.96m) and 1st Bangkok (15.98m).

Inna Shevchenko on Twitter says:
"Femen sur les timbres français. Maintenant, tous les homophobes, extrémistes et fascistes devront me lécher le cul avant d'envoyer une lettre !"
The design, illustration, layout and typography quality is seriously lacking in this retro-kitsch Ciappa and Kawena version of Marianne.

A white horizontal bar on a red ground is a universal symbol for no entry. Société Générale have even gone to the extreme in not writing their name on the brand lock-up. To me it is unwelcoming and says walk on...

Manuel Urbanke and Maximilian Hoch on the Turkish Taksim Square situation. Tear off the label to transform the bottle of Raki into a Molotov cocktail.

But the logotype looks distinctly like, totally inspired by? the Great British Chefs logo, launched in July 2011 and created by award winning Hat Trick Design.
The French version seems a very pale, retro copy of the clever British one. No agency is credited for the design. Imitation may be the highest from of flattery but it seems inappropriate that French gastronomy should be so freely inspired by British gastronomy!

Interactive light and infra-red installation by Elizabeth Leriche on the surface of a Roche Bobois table.
Typeface design at the Ecole Bleue. Students were briefed to create a conceptual and original two or three dimensional typeface. Proposals include 3D fonts, animated dynamic type, pop-ups and designs playing with light, shadow and movement.
