Arcademi.com is full of inspiration and we at Yatzer find it difficult to decide which project deserves our A grade blessing each month. Pierre Vanni from Toulouse, France, definitely stole our attention and he’s finally the winner for July. Find out why and share our enthusiasm for his work.

Pierre Vanni may be quite young but he has already managed to make a sensation to the most important media and institutions out there. This talented graphic designer that was born in 1983 in Toulouse, France, has collaborated with Centre Pompidou, The New York Times, Dazed & Confused or Neo2 and keeps on rocking the design world with his projects and exhibitions. What makes him special?, you may ask.  Well, it’s his 3D paper interventions-his playful leitmotif- that have gained him his fame. They are always present in his posters, homemade videos and installations and they add a dose of pop surrealism to everyday life that few could resist. Colorful rabbits and dark skeletons come out of nowhere, trunks mess with seemingly alive paper sculptures and letters suddenly look like dinosaurs! Freshness and imagination mix well together and Pierre Vanni definitely knows how to prepare the recipe…

As for his inspiration, he confesses that his personal style is a blend of Richard Corben vs. David Lynch and Miyazaki vs. Werner Herzog. Not bad at all then for Vanni that will probably have it hard to find extra time for vacations this summer since he is full time occupied. In fact he is preparing his upcoming exhibition at Delkographik gallery on October and at the same time he is working on the ad of the new department of Centre Pompidou dedicated to teenagers and the web design of Cneai = (National French Center for the Artistic Edition and the Printed Arts). We promise to continue keeping an eye on Pierre Vanni, the well deserved winner of our Arcademi A grade for the hot month of July, and to keep our Yatzereaders more than satisfied.
