Upon first seeing the images from todays post I immediately got the urge to provide the option of listening to the song, “I’m On A Shopping Spree”, in the background. This continued to seem a good idea until last night when I sat down and actually studied the prose of young Soulja Boy, which proved to serve no purpose on this blog, nor alongside the fine work of Jean Malek.
Despite the lack of his tunes, Soulja Boy might do well to take note of Jean’s latest work – as like every after-school kid in Repentigny, Quebec knows – there’s a serious mall in town. With 130+ shops and boutiques, Galeries Rive-Nord sounds like suburban Montréal’s very own Eaton Center; and for the malls’ campaign, Ma Ville – Mon Style, Malek was at the Canon’s helm.
In addition to the choice photographic skills, there’s something to be said for Jean’s fine attention to the details when it comes to bringing the layouts to life; as you can see and compare here with these illustrations from EM Agency.

Wondering what happened to the crying kid on the boardwalk? He was just sad that he missed the cut.
