The last samples that I'm posting are a mishmash of French Paper Company promotions collected, and more importantly, saved over the last twenty-five plus years. While they do a nice job of showing off the myriad of paper stocks that FPC produces, in reality they are a platform of the dynamic, fun, and retroactively innovative graphic design of the Charles Spencer Anderson Design Company. As with the posters, swatch books and promotions that I've previously posted samples of, the evolution of the FPC brand is on display. From it's simple, sophisticated, retro line art beginnings, to the graphic explosion of overlaid imagery that follows, the humor, smarts and all-around design excellence of the brand is on display.
