The art of planning ahead!

Catching a flight to France. Customs and visas. Shopping in France. Road safety... France.fr is the best place to find out everything you need to know before you start packing. Too much to take in? Not at all! Because to accompany these must-read articles, we enlisted the talents and quirks of France’s freshest illustrators.

None of them are over 30, and they’re all trained at the École supérieure Estienne des arts et des industries, the École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs (ENSAD) or the Haute École des arts du Rhin (HEAR) art schools. Some of them are still students.

They can be eclectic or meticulous, masters of the art of ink or juggling with colours and fonts. They are preceded by two hundred-odd years of French tradition, from graphic novels to street art, not to mention advertising and newspaper caricatures.
And they are all up for helping with practical info on France.fr.
