Hello,

Hopstreet Gallery just opened its new space in uptown Brussels during Brussels Art Days. They decided to swap their exhibition space in the Dansaert neighbourhood for a new space in Elsene at the end of 2013. The opening exhibition entitled ‘Junk De Luxe & The Canaries’ is a solo show by Thorsten Brinkmann.

On the occasion of their relocation, we were asked to rethink their identity as well. We made some adjustments and here you can see the first invitation card for their new space. Soon more about their website.

Congratulations with your new space, Hopstreet!

Dear visitor,

The book “l’amateur” looks for the real meaning behind everyday words such as beauty, attraction, romance, love and pornography. With images from the la fille d’O archive and pictures made by external contributors, this book is an attempt at restoring the true meaning of these somehow hollow words. Soon available at Uitgeverij Lannoo. Concept and design by us.

Dear visitor,

A while ago La Fille d’O, a belgian lingerie brand, came to us for a new logo and complete identity. It has been a massive project and soon we’ll show you the results. For now a sneak preview!

Ines & Lauren

P.S.: The last few months we’ve been making a book for them as well, published by Lannoo. It’ll be released at the beginning of november. So soon more!

milý čitatelia,

We just came back from a 3 day trip to Bratislava in Slovakia. The Bratislava Design Week organization invited us to be part of their exhibition ‘Work is all around’ and give a lecture as well. For the exhibition we created 5 posters with tips and tricks to appear busy. This is part of a larger project, ‘Bureau for Busyness‘, which we started one year ago for Integrated 2013. We had a great time and met a few awesome designers, such as the inspiring duo of llot llov in Berlin.

Ciau,

Dear sweethearts,

We made a postcard as a contribution for a printed edition of the online literary magazine De Gids.nl — that came with de Groene Amsterdammer last week. De Gids asked us our opinion on how sex can be seen as a skill. This resulted in an abstract lesson about how learning to make love is somehow similar to learning a language. With ‘oeeee’s, ‘aaah’s and ‘mmm’s we composed a series of mouth, tongue and throat excercices.

Next week exams!

Hi there,

About a month ago the opening of the 26th International Biennial of Graphic Design in Brno took place. Unfortunately we couldn’t be there. Now we’re seeing the pictures and we definitely missed out on something. Also: Werkplaats Typografie (one of our former schools) had an Honorary Mention of the International Jury. We’re proud to see our things exhibited next to the work of classmates Anna Haas, Corina Neuenschwander and Goda Budvytytė.

So, better late then never: thanks BRNO!

Sincerely yours,
Cox & Grusenmeyer

Dearest you,

just about a week ago came back from the city of Los Angeles where we gave a three day workshop at the Otis College of Art and Design. We had an absolutely great time with the students and the other visiting artists among who Adam Michaels from Project Projects, Donald Beekman and Liza Enebeis from Typeradio, Richard Niessen from Niessen en de Vries, Menno Cruijsen and Cecelia Martin from Lava and Felix Pfäffli from Feixen.
During our three day workshop entitled ‘Deadline: Tonight!’ students took on the role of editors and had to make three analogue transformations of existing printed publications. For example a gossip magazine was transformed into a movie script, a newspaper into a puzzle book and finally a fashion magazine into an an art book. While the students could only work by hand we filled the days with lots of deadlines – as we all know, working under pressure does evolve in great results!
On the last day we pulled all our efforts together to make a book out of the final works by the students. As expected – a day filled with deadlines but worth the pain! We want thank the scanning team, indesign team, printing team, binding team, exhibition team and presentation team for the great work!
A great thank you goes to Kali Nikitas and the Otis faculty who did a fabulous job during Design Week!

Peace from the west side,
C & G

Dear visitor,

On may 1st we drove all the way to Eindhoven to be a guest teacher at the Master programme Social Design at the Design Academy. We were impressed by the energetic atmosphere and inspiring surrounding. The work space was filled with prototypes and sketches in all kinds of materials and shapes. Can we go back to school please?

Take care,
Cox & Grusenmeyer

Dear friends,

This morning we blew away the dust from our good old ‘double penn’… and created these very (hmm… maybe not so) resembling self portraits.

All the best,
Cox & Grusenmeyer
