Esse que publishing house
The new French publishing house :esse que (previously Editions Venenum) specialises in plays and actively supports contemporary dramatists, authors and directors throughout their creative process, from writing residences to stage direction. Studio LWA has worked alongside :esse que to create a brand new visual identity for the publisher's printed production, art directing for instance the front page of their books into a highly contemporary and elegant design. With its identical chromatic scheme, both elegant and minimalist, and through the use of the same modern typeface, each page of the newly-designed Internet website offers a light and sleek layout, graphically balanced, with a high legibility. Designed and developed by Studio LWA to provide all the services new technologies can offer to maximize visibility and accessibility (i.e. a website made 'responsive', with a specific layout for smartphones of tablets, etc.), the website has also become an online bookstore : today Internet users can order :esse que's printed production directly from the publisher's digital platform.
