Quick peek

Freelance French designer with an unpronounceable name, I am driven by curiosity and experimentation. I graduated with honors from HEAD-Geneva in 2015, right before the travel bug hit me. Since 2016, I am on an ongoing collaboration with swiss graphic designer Dimitri Delcourt. In 2017, I have also spent half a year working at LUST in The Netherlands. I have developed a strong interest in social and cultural fields, and I particularly enjoy working on joint and interdisciplinary projects. I am always looking for challenges – from traditional print work to interactive, computer-driven experiences.

Location

Pushing Schrödinger’s cat experiment ever further, I am currently being both in Grenoble (FR) and Geneva (CH). It can also happen that I am anywhere else in the world, actually quite often in Den Haag (NL)

Ecologie graphique

2015 — CH — personal project
Editorial and photographic project about the overwelming presence of signs in cities.

The text «Urban signage and graphic Ecology» by Jérôme Denis and David Pontille deals with the way signs impact on our cities, and what is the sens of invading landscapes with them.

 

In this personal project, layout and photographies were the two aspects I decided to focus on, in order to discuss this omnipresence of signage, emblems, graffitis and more generally any text present in the streets.
I first took pictures of a suburban area of Geneva, inspired among others by the New Topographic aesthetic.
For each picture, I interfered on zones with typographic element to highlight both signs overuse and persistence.
Contrasting with these complex images, the use of wide white shapes and Raisonne typeface brings strength to the essay, and creates a sharp link between text and image
