Currently working as an Art Director, my main tasks are 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 pushing forward 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.

Here is a collection of motion projects that I created during the past couple of years. I love the creative freedom that motion design offers, that's why I create videos from scratch and take care of 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.

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.

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.

Passionate about drawing from my earliest years, I have always loved story-telling and particularly creation, whether in the field of image, music or video, considering this activity as recreation. To fully express my creativity, I moved towards Art Direction studies at e-artsup in Lille and Paris, interested by the diversity of its education : Design and Communication, Interactive Design, Game Design, and more especially Motion Design, my specialisation. I graduated in 2016 with honours and obtained the “Art Director in Creation and Digital Design” Master Degree.
After several experiences as a freelancer or at Video/Motion Design Agencies, I moved to Austria to join the adidas Runtastic team in 2017, firstly as a Brand Designer, before becoming Art Director in 2020. Over the years, creating has become my philosophy, it is my way of feeling alive, of being fulfilled!
