Graphic designer & photographer
With 5 years experience as a senior graphic designer specializing in print techniques, I have been responsible for the two largest budgets of the French graphic design agency, Artejul (formerly Maracas). My responsibilities include supervising the junior graphic design team for the company and working directly with the owner overseeing all projects. I also act a direct liaison to the clients understanding and meeting their needs.
One of our largest clients is Bouygues Immobilier, one of the top real estate leaders in France and Europe. As artistic director and creative team manager, I was responsible for the creation of the brand image, commercial brochures and press advertising in the Aquitaine region of France.
The second largest client is FL Holding and the Group CIR who for specialize in the restoration and preservation of ancient historical buildings from the 17th - 19th centuries. Since 2010, I have participated in the designing of the image for the company including the logo and commercial brochures and photography of the buildings. I am very proud to be part of this work which promotes the conservation of historical French architecture from cities such as Versailles to Bordeaux and many others cites in France.
As a graphic designer with 15 years experience and photographer, I am particularly proud of having participated in the success of all of my customers in domains ranging from the medical sector to real estate. I am very detailed oriented, and I take great pleasure in seeing the final product. I strive to work effectively on my own or in teams and put all of my passion into what I do.
