Graphic Design: Fred Causse, Shual Studio

In the aftermath of the worst financial crisis in decades, a period of glamorous and streamlined design for design’s sake comes to an end. A new generation of designers retrace their roots, refine their earth and research their history, sometimes going back to the beginning of time.

In this process, they form and formulate design around natural and sustainable materials, favoring timber,
hide, pulp, fibre, earth and fire. Like contemporary cavemen, they reinvent shelter, redesign tools and man made machines, and conceptualize archaic rituals for a more modest, content and contained lifestyle. Like a Fred Flintstone of the future.
