Arnaud Mercier Retrospective 1999–2011

Arnaud Mercier

Arnaud Mercier, co-founder of Area 17, passed away last year and a great site was put together in his honor. I didn’t per­son­ally know Arnaud, but his work was a big influ­ence on me. I’d always head over to Elixirstu­dio to get inspired. The work he did for Elan was my favorite.

  • The site is *very* well put-together, good grief, I’m in awe. I believe I’ll find plenty of inspi­ra­tion there as well.

  • Marc says

    What a tragic loss. An amaz­ing designer.

  • I feel embar­rassed to have not known about Arnaud. Truly an amaz­ing tal­ent — and ret­ro­spec­tive. There aren’t many design­ers alive or deceased that have a body of work this diverse and of such high qual­ity. We can prob­a­bly count on one hand. Seri­ously remark­able and impressive.
