M/M Paris

M/M Paris is a design group founded in 1992 consisting of Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag. It's likely that you've seen a lot of their work already, especially if you're familiar with fashion ads and Björk. M/M Paris are best known for thier art direction and design for artists such as Madonna (American Life album) and Björk (Vespertine, Medúlla, Volta, Greatest Hits...). They've also worked with many fashion designers including Stella McCartney, Calvin Klein, Nicolas Ghesquière, Yohji Yamamoto, and Jil Sander. Flip through any fashion magazine and you're bound to see some M/M Paris!

Note: The "White Soft Rope" image was made using The Alphabet (2001), and The Alphamen (2003), two projects by M/M Paris based on creating typography out of portraits of models.

I adore that video. Also, thanks for showing me another Bjork song that I'm now in love with.I also am fond of Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin's photography work. Awesome post!

M/M Paris is very influential to me personally, in my own art work. And I love that they have a long standing relationship with Björk. They've been doing her album and DVD covers for most of her career.
