Lunch in 2006 under the name “graphic exchange”, redesigned in 2012 and moved on Mr Cup, it is time to bring it to the next level! During the 36 days of the campaign, I design a letter a day based on the collection of papers, photos, and memorabilia I have scanned over the years!
Fabien Barral is a happy graphic designer whose innovative and unique designs attract clients from around the world (Canada, USA, Australia, India… ). In 2008 he joined forces with his wife Frédérique to create “Harmonie intérieure”, a business and brand that pushes poster and wall sticker design beyond the limits we expect from a commercial undertaking. Fabien also runs the “graphic-exchange” blog, a popular online venue for graphic designers. He learnt his trade as an agency art director, working on projects for large corporations. Design, relationships and an exchange of ideas are more important to him than the financial resources of the client though. He is currently focusing his design efforts on environmentally friendly projects, organic cosmetics and wind power… After years working under his own name, it is now under Mr-Cup pseudonym and develops his own products: letterpress calendars, coasters… In may 2012, he visits, with family, Thaïland and Bali to see what life can offer… and to met craftsmen to work with them on new products…. Back in France 1 year and half after, he creates 1st french gluten free magazine, Niépi, with his wife, soon followed my Walter magazine.
