Collectif 1806 x FML

Ford Media Lab was hired by Collectif 1806 and Rémy Cointreau to concept and create 1806 Magazine. FML developed the first two volumes, each focusing on a different city and revealing a photographic and journalistic cross-section of its cocktail culture. The project sought to pay homage to a community-at-large that thinks outside the glass, while also highlighting Rémy Cointreau’s values of terroir, people and time.
