Hong Kong from A to Z

Hong Kong from A to Z - launching - bookazine-3

Here is the latest release! An alphabet book about Hong Kong, made with my dear friend Ellen Ng.
We worked on this project for 9 months, yes 9 months, the same amount of time as a baby in your body. As luck would have it, I received the book sample at the hospital entrance on the day our second son Nessim was born!

HK from A to Z - book 2

The idea had planted it’s seed a year ago while I was on a trip in Australia. Once I returned to Hong Kong, I presented the idea to Ellen who immediately accepted to join the adventure by writing the texts.
Ellen is little Emma’s mom, we quickly agreed to name our heroine “Ayma” a mix of “Aydan” (my eldest son) and “Emma”.

I really loved working with Ellen, she helped bring this project to a dimension that I certainly would not have achieved by myself. Although we each have a specific role, Ellen writes and I illustrate, we have worked very closely, bouncing off each other’s ideas, thus creating very dynamic exchanges!
We have developped and printed the book and are currently working on its commercialisation.
This is a very exciting adventure as well as very diverse!

This book is for children, so we will be donating a portion of our profits to a charitable organisation for disadvantaged children in Hong Kong. We are still looking for the right partner, do not hesitate to contact us if you have any organisation recommendations!
We have launched a Facebook page to keep you up updated about the book. We will also have a lot of events to come, do not miss anything HERE.

Spring

about

Spring is an incredible learning centre in the heart of Wanchai.
9,000 sq feet dedicated to the well being and evolution of your child  (0-6y).
Spring is also the dedication of Joyce who created this centre.I was seized by her attention to detail and desire for perfection. I immediately thought that this project will go far.
So to celebrate their 3rd birthday, Joyce gave me the task of revamping the graphic identity.
We focused our reflection around the three following ideas:

evolution  |  creativity  |  environmentally friendly

spring-learning centre-marguerite gribouilli-01

spring-learning centre-marguerite gribouilli-02, noshadow

We have selected a new range of colours, fonts  and have created 3 patterns which will give the brand a more creative and less digital image. They are intended to be used on different media such as catalogs, stationery, web interfaces but also uniforms and  murals.

spring-learning centre-marguerite gribouilli-b-06

The existing architectural conceptcreated by Joey Ho Design is strong and contains very interesting items. My job is also to work and ensure  an overall coherent concept, therefore a bridge between the graphics universe and architectural universe must be created.

I am delighted to have had the opportunity to add my own touch to this colossal project. The center has appeared in international decorations magazines as well as development projects in mainland China.
Do not hesitate to request a visit, it is well worth the trip, the water cooler, mini kitchens, sensory room, the lights that are shaped as basketball court will awaken the child in you!
You can read Joyce’s testimonial here, thank you again Joyce for your trust, I loved working on this project.

Between sea and sky

Marguerite-gribouilli-mural-hongkong-kids-bedroom-playroom- under the sea-sailing9

Michael and his children are sailors at heart! Weekends and school holidays are the opportunities to sail around the Hong Kong archipelago. The kids had gotten a virus when we talked about the theme of their room. But the theme was obvious.

Our idea for the room was one where fish would be flying and whales jumping out of the water.

The decor was mainly painted on, only the smaller elements were stickers. It was extremely fun for me to create this mural, and the kids’ enchanted and happy eyes immediately made me forget about the hard labor of the past two days that I had spent on the ladder ^^

I can’t finish this post without talking about my assistant Thomas, who tried to step into the fresh blue paint many times! What an adorable little creature! If only some of my family members weren’t allergic to cats…

Designs for cool kids

P1100539Our little ones are heading back to school and it might just be the perfect time to redecorate their room. Some of you might have already done just that but for those that are still contemplating different options, here are three rooms I designed this summer to help trigger your inspiration.

 

TITRES-09The first one is my son’s Aydan’s. He is five years old. The background was made with paint and masking tape. It is geometrical and so quite easy to draw and replicate. The stickers are from our dinosaures collection available in our e-shop right here.

mountains_paint_dino_marguerite-gribouilli-12
P1100979P1100985
P1100969P1100972

The two following rooms were designed based on existing models. It is an ideal option for those wishing to do something special, yet tailor-made for their space and budget! It usually takes us no more than 7 to 10 days to come up with a design plan, which can later be followed by the installation (but not necessarily). We start by discussing the spirit of the room before deciding on the color of the background and selecting the theme of the room. So don’t hesitate to contact us to schedule a house visit, designing kids’ rooms is one of my favorite parts of my job!

TITRES-11For her big brother Aaron, we went with a combination of grey, peacock blue and orange. We added a touch of fun and color to the gray wall using a 2.5 meters long sticker from the “Plain is boring” collection. Different lengths (up to 3 meters) are now available in our boutique to better fit your spaces and furniture.
