My name is Romain, I am a graphic designer from Paris. I currently live in Chicago, USA. I am interested in things like people’s behaviour and what conditions it. Especially how social structures manage to influence people’s ideas and understandings of the world around them to the point that we believe our behaviour is natural and forget that it is cultural and time based.
I'm usually too busy to do this but when I can, getting out to the lakefront at night is truly one of the best things ever. There's something about the night sky, the water, wind and the city behind you that calms everything down.
The 95th floor of the Hancock tower is a noisy, faux-classy tourist trap bar/restaurant, but the elevator ride (94 floors at 1800ft/min) and the view make it worth spending money on an expensive cocktail at the bar.
Chicago is a gigantic open-air museum of hand painted signs and murals where you can still find gold leaf lettering in shop windows and ghost signs litter the city's brick walls. This handmade sign is on the wall of a Mexican garage near my apartment.
