His method? Know by heart the rules sacro-saints of typography to better free oneself from it, which allows him to create singular and original works, but always controlled. There are no secrets; because behind all this, they are years of practice and a technique sharpened over time.
In Creapills, we have selected one of his best projects: according to us, this is a typographic collection varied securities of series ! Here, Stéphane has totally "rebranded" each iconic series, including small specific drawings, accompanying the visual. As we can quickly deduce, the artist's style leans more towards type typos brush, synonymous with manual writing with felt, with full and untied; moreover, it gives a fresh boost to some of these series, which date a little.

In addition, small annotations all around the illustrations make the visual authentic, and even attest to the perfectionism of the artist (more texture here, wheelbase too thin, make the "S" bigger, less spacing between the two letters, etc.).
