We tend to eat our fingers and hair when we are anxious and stressed. Autophagy, or self-eating, is the contemporary way of sacrifying human flesh; a sacrifice is done to temper the wrath of our God, in other words : ourselves.

We are constantly surrounded by various publications. However, not every piece of printed material is able to deliver its message effectively to us. Pictures are set aside, texts are glanced through and sometimes whole magazines are only opened once ; and those are the ones that interest us. EDITED BY is a newspaper that calls on Art Directors to re-design a publication in which they see potential. Created to promote their work, share their thoughts and skills,
this is a way for designer to improve their surrounding world.
Newspaper designed with Lana Choukroune & Zuer Chen.
Exhibition of Luis Barragan's work at the Centre Pompidou, Paris.
" The ideal space must contain elements of magic, serenity, sorcery and mystery. " Luis Barragan.
Color, texture, shadow and pure lines are the main components of Barragan's work. I used linocut and vivid colours to convey the idea of a textured surface, printed on uncoated paper with a dark layer of ink that adds shadows and typography. The re-designed font brings light and magic to the eye as it is appearing and disappearing between the two colors.
In ancient Hebrew, havel means : what is created in order to disappear, which leads to the philosophy of vanity, everything that surrounds us is vain and confines us. Empty, ephemeral such are its principle. These series of bubbles prints conjure up the illusion of their strength. A simple bubble, created and immediately wiped out leaves a permanent print. Marking its passage is its only purpose and it's by achieving it that the ephemeral transposes in the eternal. The breath materialises through a bubble, an empty space, and lands on the paper where it takes its sense
— the illusion of the impact.
Entomophagy — exploring taste, scent and texture through worldwide insect gastronomy. We of course wonder what does an insect taste like. But how to describe it accurately?

Entomophagy — exploring taste, scent and texture through worldwide insect gastronomy. Data visualisation of the benefits of entomophagy and disadvantages of cattle ranching.
This is ento, a new font inspired from many insects characteristics.
It includes special glyphs - Standing and leaning bee & Standing and leaning ant - to enphasize parts of a paragraph.
A newspaper created for the RetroGoude —
a retrospective of Jean-Paul Goude
— The plane glides from one painting to another, leaving its mark, a white line throughout the exhibition. It paints the masterpieces' skies
and invite us to do the same, to visit and keep
a memory of it. The presentation is punctuated by zooms on the paintings, letting us appreciate the detail of the picture and the rendering of the plane. It leads us to the logo Louvre Airlines
and writes underneath « L’inspiration grandeur nature » ( « Life size inspiration »). The planes starts over the animation, and the journey continues.

Visual identity & newspaper, model of the Campo San Rocco, in Venice, made by Maximilien Hauchecorne
Model of the Campo San Rocco, in Venice, made by Maximilien Hauchecorne
Emptiness as an element of structure
Each new page adds a layer to the San Rocco Square’s model. The relief deepens,
the buildings are carved out of the cutout sheets which enable the light to penetrate
the book. We discover the architectural properties of each structure. Columns, vestiges of former constructions and sawtooth patterns model the space thus created. The model is displayed in a matte black case with the same proportions as the model’s, 330 mm x 450 mm.
A short animation based on geometric shapes and rythm
Visual identity for a coffee and
freshly baked goods chain.
Only one deep red-black ink is printed on recycled material or silksreen on linen.
Summer, scents and colors are here intertwined in this new serie. A trip through perfume bottles, bodies and landcapes. Color glaze and warm lights dance in exotic places, bringing torrid passions. Each perfume brings a blazing and shivering freshness and leads us throughout this adventure.
Enjoy the Color Blaze.
Identity of the PaperSound event —
Cut outs and paper foldings, architecture and design, sculptures and installations, paper will be in the spotlight. This project was made in collaboration with Justine Soulié
Conception and creation of the identity of the British techno-punk band Sheep on Drugs. All the illustrations are made with scratchcards and photoshop, for the red-blue 3D.
The scratch-like effect combined with the 3D allows us to enter in this grunge-trash world of Sheep on Drugs. We follow the sheep through disturbing illustrations until we plunge into the wolf's maw.
Illustrations and layouts of the folktale
The Bluebeard written by Charles Perrault.
The linocut is the result of the initial technique used by Gustave Doré for the first publishing of the tale and a more brutal approche. The oil paint brings the roughness and the deepsness of the colours and allows a superimposition of the illustrations without any colour blending. The engravings were digitalised and printed on a rich matte paper. The cover is still printed with oil paint and the whole book is bound with a japanese binding.
