PKN Posters: Nantes Vol. 7

Though winter is upon us, that's no excuse to cover ourselves in an absence of color! PKN Nantes has sent us a poster for their upcoming Vol. 7, designed by the amazingly talented Alice Hameau. She has this to say about her piece:


Why not add a little warmth to the autumnal greys? A gathering of colorful birds can warm us up! The swath of mouths moving, squealing, minds thinking, reflecting upon the vibrant infinity found in this kaleidoscopic square.

The exciting evening, coming on December 17 to ENSA, will feature presentations from designers, writers, cellarmen, and more!
