WORK - ARCHIVE - ABOUT

Hi, Hello,
Bonjour.


I am an independent designer and art director based in Paris; my studio is developing projects in communication with and for clients worldwide.

Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2014 with a master in visual communication, I have regularly collaborated with designers, architects, artists, brands and institutions.

A few years ago, I expanded my practice by learning how to professionally audit, design and program websites thanks to online platforms such as Webflow, Flux or CodePen.

As of September 2021, I am teaching part-time and giving weekly tutorials at the Paris School of Architecture. Additionally, I am developing online courses and projects via the multi-cultural platform Patreon; all the related content will be safely stored on my website and available via subscriptions soon.

Please email me for further information or if you would be interested in working together.
