Denis Carrier — Grenoble, France

"I think there’s a French design style that is a mix of type and illustration. Designers such as Michel Bouvet, M/M, Antoine+Manuel or Jean Julien are interesting actors on the French scene. This style probably comes out of the French design history created by designers such as Raymond Savignac or typographers such as Maximilien Vox or Pierre Faucheux."

Denis Carrier is much like his work – not so big, not very muscular, but really funny and simple. Living in Grenoble – a three-hour train ride from Paris – he studied graphic design at Supcrea there for five years. His work is very recognisable: a central idea, clearly introduced, often humorous, always effective. No twirls or flourishes, his illustrations are hand-made or they use vector techniques.
