And what’s more, they’ve reason to celebrate since 2017 is their 15-year anniversary.  Graphéine’s work begs second and third glances, not only because of the bold typography they incorporate into their solutions, but also because of the daring illusions they pull off, such as their anamorphic graphics for the Lyon St-Exupéry airport.

4th Amendment Underclothes.


I’m always at the airport, and it never occurred to me that the 4th amendment is CONSTANTLY violated by the TSA, but the 4th Amendment clothing line is a little poke under the ribs at this intrusion.  Now there’s a way to protest those intrusive TSA X-ray scanners without saying a word.  But with the 4th metallic ink-printed undershirts and underwear, your saying everything you need to.  Assert your rights without saying a word.
