Pour Chaumont Postcards


Production Method




And Atelier




These young Portuguese designers have taken the “seductive and magical” qualities of travel posters and reintroduced them as postcards, which can actually travel themselves. Motivational!

Project Description

For the third year, the International Poster and Graphic Design Festival of Chaumont provided 10 “carte blanche” exhibition spaces of about 25 m², occupied by 10 groups or individual graphic designers. We were gladly in charge of one of the spaces with a self initiated project called "Pour Chaumont". Through the revival of travel posters and their seductive and magical way of visually depicting a place, this project was a result of our personal experience and discovery about Chaumont, in a different but forgotten format that can actually travel on its own – postcards. We wanted to connect the dots between Chaumont as Ville de Chaumont and as Ville du Graphisme by designing a series of images/ illustration/ portraits/ associations/ illusions/ stories/ fictions that would bring inhabitants and designers closer and together in the same piece of paper, that hopefully will take the “lines of Chaumont” to many parts of the world.

Production Lesson(s)

We should have used a varnish to protect the postcards from fingerprints or other marks.”
