Project 2 of 3
A personal project created for a good friend of mine, Matthieu K. Chardon, strives to provide a personal identity system to compliment a contemporary renaissance man — with the degrees to prove it. Lightly branded collateral, objects, apparel and accessories were crafted to fit the eclectic interests and personal style of this perpetual Parisian student, graduating and ready for the world in the summer of 2012. The project was a collaborative experiment with Brooklyn-based photographer Bob Martus.
