Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
Strong and cheeky female characters, bursting with colour and life
A prominent theme Marylou Faure’s work is the advocacy of equal rights for all and a strong representation of women. Her characters convey numerous qualities of femininity, be that playfulness, sensuality, strength or innocence. Without eyes to express such emotions, she cleverly employs body language and positioning to portray a mood. The results, in their own quiet way, challenge notions of beauty and femininity.
‘I like to focus on the intimate and private worlds of women everywhere.’
Over the years, Marylou's striking work has appeared on everything from posters to campaigns to skateboards and murals, and for clients including Spotify, Nike, YouTube, Apple, MTV, ASOS and Deliveroo.
