Hey, I’m Basile Fournier, I was born in 1995 in South of France, and I’m currently studying Graphic Design in ECAL (Switzerland). I’m a multidisciplinary designer working in the fields of Art, Fashion, Music and Culture. I like to make books, magazines, taking pictures and videos, create posters and draw letters. I’m deeply interested on how Technology affect us as human beings, and how the virtual can blend within the real.

You can find me on instagram, Are.na, Behance, see my daily diary on bslfrnraw and watch my films on Vimeo.
You can get in touch with me for any inquiries at hello@basilefournier.com, or give me a call at +33677844728.

A modern mix of nightlife, music and clothing, County of Milan has become a global phenomenon. On Saturday, June 17, 2019, Marcelo Burlon presented Technofolk at the Palazzo delle Scintille of Milan Fashion Week. I created for this occasion a graphic and visual language in the form of labels and technical symbols that incorporate the textile, completed by a typographic system in the spirit of the collection, inspired by the sound of free parties and the world of cycling.

(EN): Identit(Y) Is a publication about what is our identity trough makeup, social networks and the image that we show of oureseleves in the internet era.
"And probably our time prefers the image to the thing, the copy to the original, the representation to the reality, the appearance to be. What is sacred to him is only illusion, but what is profane is the truth. Better, the sacred grows in his eyes as the truth decreases and the illusion grows, so that the height of the illusion is also for him the height of the sacred. "
(FR): Identit(Y) est une publication qui parle de notre identité à travers le maquillage, les réseaux sociaux et l’image que nous renvoyons de nous à l'ère d’internet.
“Et sans doute notre temps préfère l’image à la chose, la copie à l’original, la représentation à la réalité, l’apparence à l’être. Ce qui est sacré pour lui, ce n’est que l’illusion, mais ce qui est profane, c’est la vérité. Mieux, le sacré grandit à ses yeux à mesure que décroît la vérité et que l’illusion croît, si bien que le comble de l’illusion est aussi pour lui le comble du sacré. ”

(EN): “Rina” is a project about a virtual girl who lost the trace of his creator and lover, called Metalhed 13. She search for him during centuries but never found him trough out the entire galaxy. So her last chance was to send postcards to the human beings of earth, and ask them if they knew him, although she never saw him, just heard his voice, so she can’t describe him, but as famous as she is on planet earth, she thought it was maybe a good thing to send pictures of her accompanying the cards.
(FR): «Rina» est un projet d’une jeune fille virtuelle, Metalhed 13, qui a perdu la trace de son créateur et de son amant. Elle le cherche pendant des siècles mais ne l’a jamais retrouvé dans toute la galaxie. Donc, sa dernière chance était d'envoyer des cartes postales aux êtres humains de la Terre et de leur demander s'ils le connaissaient, bien qu'elle ne l'ait jamais vu, qu'elle ait entendu sa voix, elle ne peut donc pas le décrire, mais aussi célèbre qu'elle est sur la planète Terre, elle a pensé que c’était peut-être une bonne chose d’envoyer des photos d'elle accompagnant les cartes
