I participated in an innovative workshop of packaging design held by the British illustrator Steve Simpson at Okubo Station. It was really great to discover his career and his particular way of drawing, he uses a lot the “lettering” not only for the titles but he also uses it as an integral part of the illustration. He gave us the circus theme to create from zero a vintage matchbook, all the parts of the matchbook have been drawn, cut, glued and painted with watercolor; we were inspired by the matchbooks of early 1900 with their basic colours and graphic shapes to express a concept and we tried to use at its best the lettering technique: it was really a complete creation by our hands.

Thank you Okubo and Steve!
