Commissaires is a Montreal-based gallery boutique specialized in the diffusion of unique creations made by international designers. This company commissioned Paprika to design the poster and invitation in preparation for the exhibition “Babiche”. During the event, artists and designers were invited to create a piece made from “babiche” or sinew, a very sturdy leather trap traditionally associated with snowshoe braiding.
For the occasion, we created an exclusive font reminiscent of braided sinew and which was used for the poster and invitation. This surprising font mirrors well sinew’s traditional appearance, all the while bringing its modern character to the fore.
