Item description for Chalet by Francois Chalet...

Swiss artist Franois Chalet started as a comic drawer and illustrator until he began to remodel his skills for the computer. From then on he designed flyers and album covers and his inimitable way of interweaving comic figures and modern computer graphics into stories has brightened up MTV campaigns, illustrated magazines (from jetzt! to Harpers Bazaar), ads and websites. Franois Chalets style has become a trademark, inspiring other graphic designers to take the creative challenge of developing an own metaphorical language - and is very fun. The book does not only show this well-known side of his, but gives insight into the working methods and ideas of graphic conceptions which often blend with his illustrations. Chalet is happy, colourful, funky and at the same time , like the Bro Destruct book, a universal statement on the way-of-life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Chalet?

pure graphic content  May 15, 2003
this has got to be one of the most amazing design book's i've seen and owned. Simple illustrations yet so expresive! i love it and highly recommend it.
A chic voice  Nov 12, 2001
You may have seen artist Francois Chalet's work already without knowing it -- he has designed the horoscope icons for `Harper's Bazaar' and has done numerous campaigns for MTV, for example the European Music Awards 2001. And if simple graphic illustrations with a European look that's influenced with Japanese design is your thing, you might want to check out some more of Chalet's work. His mathematic, bowed faces, minimalist drawings and computer illustrations are now available in this book, which not only contains examples of his work but also insights into his working methods, which is helpful for aspiring artists seeking a virginal taste.
A JEWEL of graphic design  Apr 20, 2001
I wish I could show the inside of this book because by just looking at it, the design speaks for itself. The Chalet's graphic world is full of very creative and funny characters that have been made for such experimental clients as MTV. When I opened the book for the first time I was (and I'm still) amazed to see how much this guy had made with a computer. Without hesitation I give this book more than five stars and if you're a lover of the MTV style you're definitely going to cherish this book.
