Don’t you just love the creative ones? The ones who have the vision to see things differently and who dare to experiment? Zim and Zou is a graphic design studio based in France. They propose a contemporary approach to design, using different techniques such as paper sculpture, illustration etc. They are a duo, Lucie and Thibault (how cool is that name!). Their designs are pure art and have a fairytale quality to them. Don’t you just love their spirograph snowflakes and paper clouds?
If I would do anything else (workwise), I would like to be a designer. I sometimes think I maybe made a mistake by going to university. Maybe I should have gone to art school or a design academy. It seems to me such a great gift to be a creator. In my current job I feel more like a facilitator, which is also fine and dandy, but it has its limits. When I read about Zim and Zou, those French heroes, my creative heart stops a beat.
