UNFAM Raphaël Bastide

UNFAM is an experimental web app to make stuff (posters, tshirsts, web pages…) with unfamous and unfamiliar graphic content. You can interact with this app by three different approaches: 1. Use the YES / NO choice select the images you want, and chose your output media. 2. FEED: Pick strange, unfamous, weird images and other graphic material on the last search result pages and dark corners of the web. 3. HACK: Create a new output like web pages, booklets, posters…


PPP flyer Raphaël Bastide

When printed, the page becomes the event’s flyer. Standards web technologies HTML and CSS make the content of the website printable and adapted to a A4 paper sheet.


PJ Machine Sarah Garcin

The PJ Machine (Publishing Jockey Machine) is a box with arcade buttons to control a NodeJs web interface for live and collaborative publishing

For PrePostPrint, the PJ Machine proposes to create posters collaboratively and in real time. You must be at least two to play with the PJ Machine. One is working on the web interface, adding content in markdown or html and designing the poster in CSS. The other one is controlling the position, the size and the letter spacing pressing the arcade buttons of the PJ Box. Every change you make is shared in real time with the other people connected to the same poster. At the end, pressing the green button generates the poster pdf to print.

DEViation Étienne Ozeray
and Romain Marula

DEViation is a collaborative printable layout tool in the web browser. It uses pads where everybody can edit CSS by going to and allows a real-time previsualisation. Each participant is invited to modify and appropriate the existing layout and let it as it is for the next one.

The goal is to use this tool to produce a book putting light on the evolution of the layout though time and users. We propose to deviate from the classical linearity of the book object to create a set of books where we can find each modification to the original layout.

Works properly only on Chromium or Chrome.
