We are two partners who work in a french graphic design studio whose name is Studio Tricolore. Damien Auriault and myself, Yann Le Dluz. This signpainting project was ordered by Emmaus Community in Lescar Pau (Atlantic Pyrenees). EMMAUS is an international charitable movement founded in France in 1949 by the priest Abbé Pierre to combat poverty and homelessness. You can have more informations on the movement there : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmaus_(charity) The construction of the interchange of the new motorway linking Bordeaux to Pau took place near the community. The companions of the community have decided to use this location to improve their visibility. We were therefore entrusted the design and the realization of a painted sign with an area of ​​3,5 m x 20 m. We have chosen, through each letter of the logo, to represent a facet of the alternatives proposed by the community. "E" for ecology, "M" for diversity, "M" for movement, "A" alternative, "U" Utopia, and finally "S" for solidarity. This work was made ​​entirely by hand, like letters painter of the early century.
