ADIDAS

2017    –––––––––––––––––––    2022

“Here to create”

––––– adidas strategy slogan

Working as an Art Director, my main tasks were to define visual styles and concepts for marketing campaigns & photoshoots, as well as providing guidance to the Brand Design team by aligning Runtastic to the adidas brand, creating guidelines/toolkits and improving workflows/processes.
Over the past few years, I’ve worked on campaigns such as United Nations x Run Wild, NASA x Space Race, Run for the Oceans etc… to guide users of the adidas apps towards a healthy lifestyle, as well as, promoting sustainability topics to raise awareness about our planet's condition.
I previously worked as a Brand Designer, creating graphics for various marketing channels before taking part in the rebranding of Runtastic to visually emphasise its connection to adidas.

MOTION

2012    –––––––––––––––––––    now

“All that is important is this one moment in movement. Make it vital and worth living.”

––––– Martha Graham

Here is a collection of motion projects that I created in the past couple of years. I love the creative freedom that motion design offers, which is why I create videos from scratch and enjoy being involved in every step of the creative process: concept, story-board/sketches, art direction, design/illustration, animation, compositing, video editing, music/sound effects and even sometimes recording the voice-over.
The section also includes showreels of my professional experiences at Square Garden and Orawa Production (motion design/video agencies).
I created most of the projects on my own, but some of them are a result of a collaborative effort: a description will be displayed below the videos to provide further information.

GENÈSE

2015    –––––––––––––––––––    2016

“In the beginning…”

––––– Genesis 1:1

The emergence of the digital era leads to significant cultural, social and technological evolutions, while offering a wide range of innovative tools. Nevertheless, we find that religions are struggling to adapt to this new era. This is especially true for Christianity in France.
The associative project Genèse aims to meet the specific creative & design needs of Christian organisations while understanding their beliefs and values. This project is the case study of my Design Master Thesis at e-artsup about the Communication of Christianity in the digital era. Based on my research, I conceptualised and created the art direction & branding of the association, the interactive web design, web development (HTML/CSS/JS) and the Motion Design video. As it is a showcase, it also includes 5 design projects I executed for clients of the Christian sphere, thus, it is as well as a portfolio on its own.

IGNIS

2019    –––––––––––––––––––    now

“Music is the medicine of the mind”

––––– John Logan

In video creation, sound is the natural prolongation of the visual content. It is a powerful tool to express feelings and drive emotions. With Ignis Fidei, my goal is to push my boundaries and expand my creativity, not only visually, but through music creation.
It is basically a project that I work on during my spare time to experiment and have fun while learning beat making. My approach is holistic as I want to provide both a visual and a musical experience. Therefore, beyond the music creation, the project consists of branding/visual identity, song artworks, motion design and merchandising.
The project is still in development.
Coming soon: 1st EP (6 songs), project web page, Instagram page.

ACADEMIC

2011    –––––––––––––––––––    2016

“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.”

––––– Pablo Picasso

Various projects have emerged from my multidisciplinary design education at e-artsup. I collected them in this section. It contains mainly fictional projects taken from my first three years of education (the last two years being included in the Motion Design section).

The projects are of multiple kind: branding, illustration, drawing, game design, video mapping, interactive design, UI/UX, infographic, web design…

“You have to be in a state of play to design.”

––––– Paula Scher

Since my childhood, the playfulness of the creative process has guided my path: creating is indeed my way of feeling alive and being fulfilled.

I became an art director and motion designer passionate about story-telling across multiple media and platforms: video, image, web, graphic content, digital marketing campaigns...
I am specialised in the development of creative strategies, formulating concepts and turning them into visual content.

With 7+ years of experience working at global brands, design agencies or as freelancer, I have developed brand identities, created digital & interactive experiences and supported design teams with creative guidance.
