Mr Cup Creative Studio — Fabien Barral — Arles, France
“I have collaborated with Studio Pression for years to print my project. This is like a band, I write the song, but without their amazing music, it would be nothing. They always bring me ideas and take my project to another level. For the 2015 calendar, for example, they told me ‘Hey, it is the year of light, we should print it with glow-in-the-dark ink. For the posters, it was a new machine and we were amazed by the result, just like two kids with a new toy… but a big, big one.”
