Monita in Bogotá: business cards
On 27, Mar 2013 | One Comment | In Branding | By ClaireGuilloton
I finally received my new business cards for Monita in Bogotá and www.claireguilloton.com. The idea was to have both of my activities information in the same very cute format.
Usually, I don’t do advertising for big companies as I prefer to show the work of individual independant, but I think they have a good service, so I make the exception: Moo.
Chicaque – the cloud forest
On 25, Mar 2013 | 2 Comments | In Tourism | By ClaireGuilloton
If you take your car, in an hour, you are outside Bogotá in a beautiful park called the Chicaque. It’s called the Cloud Forest (Bosque de las nuves).
It feels weird because you are in a cloud all the time which gives a mysterious atmosphere to the place. You can also camp there. The place is massive (we had time to do a 10th in half day).
Fantastic place to get outside the massive city quite quickly and breathe!
Website of the place: Chicaque.

Mario brought a new chili from another trip: the yellow chili. It’s beautiful!
Have a lovely weekend!

My branding is taking shape. It takes always a while to make it nice.
And yesterday, I went to do the stamp. (I was so excited about that, poor me…)
To make the stamp, I went to the Ricaurte, which is an area of Bogotá where you can print everything you want for very cheap. However, I brought my USB key to the shop and the person in charge just lost all the information I had on it. So, we just went there for nothing and I ended up making the stamp in another shop in calle 95 con 15, where it was very simple and quick, worth a higher price.

Expo Galería Santa Fe
On 19, Mar 2013 | 2 Comments | In Art, Bogotá | By ClaireGuilloton
Last Saturday, I went to an event happening in front of the Galería Santa Fe. Art and environment, that was the topic. The movement is to show awareness about the scary fall of biodiversity in Colombia and in the rest of the world.
Some vegetables were dancing Colombian music and reggaeton, it was quite fun.
There was also those large-scale prints with wood on canvas, the press being the little truck we can see on the picture. Cool.
Sorry, the pictures are not that great as I took them with my Iphone. I need to get a good camera that I can take out on the street. Because with my massive lense, it’s not really ideal in Bogotá. Any recommendations?

Patterns of Colombia: chivas
On 13, Mar 2013 | No Comments | In Bogotá, Product Design | By ClaireGuilloton
A Chiva is an artisan rustic bus used in rural Colombia. Chivas are adapted to rural public transport, especially considering the mountainous geography of the Andean region of the country. In Bogotá, people rent chivas for the night to party and get drunk with aguardiente.
The buses are varied and characterized by being painted colorfully and that’s why I decided to get a pattern out of it. I think it represents well colours of Colombia.
Source of the pictures: internet.

Les amis Bizcocheria
On 06, Mar 2013 | 2 Comments | In Bogotá | By ClaireGuilloton
A friend of Mario, Julia, just started her business with two of her friends. The first time I went there, I thought: “I need to put it on my blog”… They are located in cra 14 con 86a segundo piso.
Basically, you enter like if you were entering in an appartement, and when you get there, it’s a lovely cute place with few places to seat but you can still have a coffee or tea and some fantastic patisseries. They obviously thought a lot about design before they even started the thing. It’s georgous!
But the most of the most is the food in itself. They have few items but you can feel that each of them have been thought for years before getting out of the oven PERFECT.
If you want to do orders from them (they have a delicious chocolate cake, yummy!), or simply know more, go to their facebook page which is quite active: Facebook page.
Patterns of Colombia: wood sculptures

I have seen this type of Artesania in espoartesanias last December. It is lovely the drawing they can do on wood, and from there, I tried to get more patterns.
