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.
The creation of an entirely new branding aesthetic
Already in the 1970s Michel Comte worked for Bergdorf Goodman in New York on their impressive window displays. This was an early collaboration with Andy Warhol, and marked a time when Comte discovered the bold impact simple yet exquisitely executed decorative schemes could have on passersby.
Since these opportune beginnings, he has created numerous such projects, mostly incorporating natural elements—the full bounty of flora. Together with art director Jens Remes, Comte creates an entirely new retail environment and branding aesthetic.
