“Par hasard (french) could be translated to: coincidentally or by any chance. Based on that, we decided to play with a grid of random dice numbers.”
Olivier Charland and Cécile Gariépy make images that both move, and don’t. After working at ValléeDuhamel and Sagmeister & Walsh (Olivier) and directing films at Les Enfants (Cécile), they launched their own design studio, Par hasard, in Montreal. The studio produces images, spaces, and videos with a handmade, minimalist and lively aesthetic. They are also pretty good at mini-golf, but that’s another story.
