Jul 2020
I created a 30s animation to promote the iconic Blazer sneakers of Nike that was released on the @nike and @footlocker Instagram accounts. More than a hundred of drawings were needed for this project. My goal was to create a bold, minimalist, and energetic animation to highlight how powerful and timeless these sneakers are.

Bulletin
Mar 2019 – Apr 2019
Région de New York City, États-Unis
Bulletin is a top lifestyle feminist brand with stores in Soho and Nolita in New York. I created a collection of clothing and accessories to encourage women to raise their financial aspirations. It was sold at Stacks House, a “pop-up with purpose.” According to the founder and former Hillary Clinton fundraiser Kindra Meyerthe, the mission is to promote financial independence and help close the gap between women and wealth in America. “We want women to know being rich is OK”. Stacks House is a “proudly for-profit feminist financial business concept.” It is a maze of colorful installations — only instead of ice cream, the theme is money, investment, and women.

LIVY
Jul 2016 – Nov 2018
Région de Paris, France
Livy is a French premium lingerie brand. Our collaboration started when it was an unknown newborn start-up, until it became a very successful brand ($3,8M turnover in 2018, 25 stores across the world & a partnership with Victoria Secret). I created the whole brand platform and storytelling of the brand, as well as the claim “We love we create we women we LIVY”. I wrote all the press releases and product descriptions in both French and English, I named all the products of the first two collections. I art directed and managed the Instagram account @livystudio for two years while building an audience from 0 to 70k followers through a very bold and consistent visual storytelling. This experience was a great opportunity to combine my creative, strategy and copywriting skills with my love for fashion and graphic styles.

REFINERY29 is a trailblazing digital-media and entertainment company for young women with a global audience footprint of 550 million across all platforms. They contacted me to create posters for the 28th room of their 29ROOMS show, an iconic immersive event that gathers brands and artists. I create four bold and carnivalesque posters for the Moxy Hotels, that highlight the Moxy Freak Flag Show, which takes some of their more popular perks and reimagine them as freak show characters. The posters are selfie-friendly and with some mirror areas that enhance the immersive spirit of the event.
