Available. Contact Me


         Freelance Interactive art director and graphic designer. I design interactive experiences focused on user, accessibility, usability, detail, typography, information architecture, interactive storytelling... I also work on various printed objects: visual identities, books and posters...
I conceived the graphic design of Rouge Micro, a book for the photography collective Temps Machine about their residency in the french radio France Culture.

         I used to work for five years as lead designer at Octave & Octave agency in Paris. I have evolved the internal design process and supervised the design team between 2010 and 2015. I worked mostly on pitches and design production. We won the pitch for LVMH.com in February 2013 and we just released the website online. We help them to rethink their digital echosystem and to build an accessible website. I was the interactive art director on the project. I supervised designers on the production. We conceived the style guide of the global website (content hierarchy, use of colors, user interface, interaction, components...). We collaborated with many illustrators like Aurore de la Morinerie, Jean André, Cecilia Carlstedt, Emilio Ponzi… and video producer (FatCats) to create rich content.
I worked for clients like Airliquide.com, Arianespace.com, APCI, Namco Bandai Games, Orange, Selekter, SNCF, Splendia...
