Hello, I’m François,
a parisian graphic
art director
& photographer.

Being working in the creative industry since 12 years, I specialized on graphic identities, editorial projects and art direction, giving some particular attention to typography.
Since a few years, i’m also developing an independant photographer activity, focusing on building up strong and consistent series. In 2015, my project “After Party“ got awarded from “Fidal youth photography award“.

I was born in Lyon in 1980 and graduated from Brussels based Saint-Luc School in 2003 (graphic design and typography department). In 2004, I joined Fabrica, Benetton’s communication research center based in Treviso Italy, an international thinktank dedicated to creativity, where i learned, experimented and worked among an international top creative community. Back in France in 2006, i settled as a graphic designer in Paris. Since then, i’ve been working for various range of clients, small studios, big agencies, free-lancing or being employed.

in 2015, while working at Betc i was lucky to be in charge of the redesign of the new identity of the renowned french retail store Galeries Lafayette, which was awarded twice on french art director club in typography and design section.
