Creative thinking is at the core of d school! A hub for innovators at Stanford, human values are also key of their collaborative approach. Therefore, it was more than a great pleasure organizing artistic activities for this prestigious programme. We came up with bespoke solutions and original artistic event, renewing concepts of calligraphy and drawing on bookmarks, emphasizing the participatory approach. Everyone enjoyed these creative experiences which matched with the d school transformative learning experiences.
In a time when there is hunger for innovation everywhere, d school describes itself as a methodology for innovation that combines creative and analytical approaches, and requires collaboration across disciplines. This process—which has been called design thinking—draws on methods from engineering and design, and combines them with ideas from the arts, tools from the social sciences, and insights from the business world. At Paris Art Ltd, we simply like this prospective and we really enjoyed working on these event entertainment solutions!
For an exquisite new collection launch we had the pleasure to collaborate with the New York brand Alice and Olivia for artistic events in Hong Kong. With 2 major stores at IFC and Harbour City the brand brings a colorful way of life and a very positive atmosphere that many celebrities are addicted to (Angelababy, Angelina Jolie, Eva Longoria…). Inspired of dresses from the collection we thought of a bespoke solution and designed floral illustrations in the same spirit, using flowers and particularly rose petals. This was created for boutique events.
A Midsummer Night’s dream was a journey through a night of fantasy, mystery and enchantment in the biennial ball of the Oxford and Cambridge Society of Hong Kong. Paris Art Ltd brought creative solutions and bespoke experiences to this VIP event which gathered former students of the prestigious universities. With live sketching, live painting and other artistic activities the event proved to be a magical evening as Shakespearean references were prevalent through the night while many talented artists gave performances. Besides, the decoration was a must with attention paid to details and a will to transform the venue in a charming atmosphere. Memorable!

Eric from Paris Art Ltd is painting the HK skyline in a very colorful way!
The painting was auctioned and got into the house of a renowned bank senior manager. The money went to the Society’s Scholarship Fund in support of meaningful projects around the world conducted by Oxford and Cambridge students.
It seems our live sketching got a waiting list!
For its corporate event, this renowned international bank wanted to invite its senior female managers into the world of Chanel. Therefore, we came up with different artistic solutions: the first one was to introduce fine Chanel inspired illustrations during the session as an event entertainment. All the ladies would be sketched in the Chanel way and we would add Chanel initials on the paper. The second was to teach about Chanel history and explain how Gabrielle Chanel built such a great empire while remaining a very chic and professional lady, so we organized a conference on Chanel life.
During the artistic event, the illustrations were personalized and done in 7mn each, by Lucie, the French fashion designer from our team. As for the Chanel conference, it seems the topic got a big interest from both women and men, everybody enjoyed learning more about Coco story…
Christmas is coming! We had so much fun doing this project! Thinking of creative solutions made us come with this artistic idea. A calendar can be so boring, therefore we launched ourselves the challenge to make it joyful and inspiring. We had the idea to use French sentences and lifestyle illustrations, the cheeky ones we use regularly in France. You can read here a few quotes taken from this desk calendar, the kind of calendar which should make our daily life happy! This calendar can be ordered or personalized with other illustrations.
