deValence is a graphic design studio specialized in both editing and designing projects. In 2008, they established the publishing house, B42, and Back Cover magazine, thus allowing it to extend its breadth of expertise in design to the production of books. Their clients include Centre Pompidou, La Commune theater, L’Architecture d’Aujourd’hui etc. They also have long lasting collaboration with artists Raphaël Zarka, Saâdane Afif and Mathieu Abonnenc.
In February 2015, the Slanted editors embarked on a one-week-trip to Paris to take a close-up look at contemporary design work and the beloved and hated capitol of France. The Slanted team met 18 design studios and found a virtuosic approach on the unconcealed wounds and contradictions of a rapidly changing society as well as spirit and humor as a subversive armamentarium. They produced comprehensive studio portraits which provide a vivid and up-to-the-minute picture of the scene. The resulting video interviews have been enriched with video material from the Shutterstock collection. Get the whole story in Slanted magazine #25 – Paris!
