In the fall of 2010, during a long stay in New York, Vahram Muratyan launched his first blog, Paris versus New York, a tally of two cities. After being viewed 4 million times, Penguin published it as a book, which became insanely popular, and we understand why. The illustrations are simple, clever and creative. These are just a few examples from the book. We stumbled upon the book and bought a copy at Colette in Paris. Vahram, we hope you do a Chicago version! It’s also available on Amazon.
How great is this packaging? This is exactly the kind of work we want to be doing… taking an ordinary product that can speak for itself and have fun with it. Sadly, this isn’t something that actually got produced. It’s concept work by student designer Simon Laliberté at Université du Québec in Montréal, Canada.
