“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.

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

––––– Martha Graham

This page showcases a series of motion projects developed throughout my professional journey. I derive great satisfaction from the creative freedom inherent in motion design, thereby fully engaging in video production across all stages of the creative process: conceptualization, storyboarding/sketching, art direction, design/illustration, animation, compositing, video editing, incorporation of music/sound effects, occasionally extending to voice-over recording.
This section encompasses productions spotlighting my tenure at Square Garden, Orawa Production and Proton.
While most projects are the product of independent creation, select endeavors have been collaborative in nature; descriptions below the videos offer additional insights into their creation process.

“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.



2019    –––––––––––––––––––    now

“Music is the medicine of the mind”

––––– John Logan

In video creation, sound is the natural prolongation of 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 has been launched and is still in development.



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…
Further information about each project can be found next to the artworks in the section.

“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 9+ 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.
