- #everythingisfalse"In a world which really is topsy-turvy, the true is a moment of the false" — Guy Debord, The Society Of The Spectacle ↦ Buy #everythingisfalse on Tictail "This small pad contains the prodromes of a reflection I am conducting (and which I hope will achieve a more articulated development) about the thin ice that separates the true and the false. The necessity of this reflection was made more urgent by observation of the fragmented and distorted reality we live." Half notebook, half sketchbook
- Visionaria 23Visionaria is a film festival founded in 1991 by several passionate individuals. Throughout the years Visionaria has opened the doors to new collaborators and had become an international event, but Visionaria has firmly held this ethos: be open to experimentation and new art forms as well as foster and promote young artists. I worked around the year theme ‘Art, resistance, flight’ to create an image that was deep and ethereal.
- ImagenWith 20 years of experience in video management, Imagen Ltd enables companies to effectively archive, store, manage and search for video content. The company’s main product, Imagen Enterprise Video Platform, helps companies of all sizes and from all industries preserve and navigate their ever-growing media libraries. Following fast growth this year, Imagen started a deep change process that included a complete rebranding (formerly Cambridge Imaging) developed by Canefantasma Studio. After many rounds of concepts and exploration, we chose a very simple and flexible solution. We have created a design system that reinforces the idea of solid and reliable products. To provide for flexibility, we developed a broad range of sample applications and usages, including stationary, event marketing materials, way-finding and iconography.
