About a year ago, Brand Brothers’ team reached us to present « On The Grid », a collaborative city guide created by the Brooklyn based agency Hyperakt. At that time, we were packing our bags to fly to New York for the Brand New Conference… The project was coming to us at a good time!
Among the many city guides spread online, On The Grid stands out by its collaborative and design aspects, the guide being curated by designers worldwide.
For every major city in the world an agency, a studio or a creative volunteers to be an ambassador in his city. This ambassador then has to create a local community of designers who’ll stand aside him, people who want to share exceptional places in their neighborhood with the rest of the world.
Our great ‘team Lyon’ seized the opportunity to be part of this project:
We’re quite excited with the people we’ve teamed up to explore the city:
- La Croix-Rousse : Séverin Millet & Servane Tranchant
- Les Pentes : Ghislain Mirat
- L’Hypercentre : Gaspard Ollagnon - Catalogue Studio
- De Cité à Préfecture : Eugénie Bergeron & Aurélien Aumond - Studio Definition
- Ainay & Confluence : Bernard Magri - Beast Collective
- Vieux Lyon & Fourvière : Tiphaine Guillermou - Tiff in Lyon

More districts to come very soon! We'll share the news on social media.
It was great fun being part of this top-notch project. Meeting our favorite booksellers, gallery and restaurant owners has been very exciting.
We’ll keep in mind lively discussions, a private visit - time warp atmosphere, guess where… - and unexpected discounts on cocktails (much appreciated).
If you feel like becoming a city ambassador, get in touch with Hyperakt, and there’s also a dedicated form on the On The Grid website.
And if you just want to join as a curator, feel free to contact the ambassador of your city!
