(All artists have to answer the same 10 questions.)
1. First and Last Name
2. Where are you from? And where are you currently living?
I was born in Brittany, France but now I’m living in London, UK.
3. What’s your main influences?
I would say the more I grow up and the more I get influenced. At the moment I’m inspired a lot by product design and architecture, I like when things look and feel simple but carry a lot of weight.
4. How was your path until this moment? How did you start?
I have kind of always been drawing since I was a kid but never seemed to know that could be a real option so I continued school until 18 where I passed my baccalaureat in sciences. I then decided to be serious about drawing and went to an illustration school: Ecole Emile Cohl in Lyon, France. The summer before graduating in illustration I discovered motion graphics by two friends and decided to learn how to do it. So for 2 months, I learned 3Ds max and after effects during the night as I was doing an internship in a small design agency. That was hard but I liked it very much. then I shifted from illustration course to multimedia and finally, I graduated in multimedia and design, then got hired as full-time motion designer in Paris for a company called ventes-privee.com where I stayed for around 2-3 years. It was a great time there, I learned a lot. Then with my girlfriend, we just wanted to try something fun and decided to move to London. where we still are since 2011. I have been only freelancing since I’m in the UK, I got married, had a child three years ago and another one is coming soon.
