Who am I? I’m a 28 year old Graphic and Motion Designer
Where am I? Set in Brussels, Belgium
What I do? Birth announcements, wedding invitations, visual identities, logos and 2D animation videos.
Why me? Because I love what I do, I’m honest and super fun to be around. Always open to comments and suggestions, I adapt my work according to your needs and desires. Oh, and I intend to overshare when I work so there will never be bad surprises.
Want to know a bit more about me? Well, I’ve always been the creative kid of the family. Nothing made me more happy than having a piece of paper and a pair of scissors in my hands. I’ve always loved art and my favorite ones have always been lettering, cinema and photography. So when it came to choosing a job I would do for the rest of my life, it was only obvious that I had to become a graphic and motion designer.
After I graduated from high-school with a degree in modern language, I decided to fulfill a long life dream of traveling abroad and spent six months in Australia.
As soon as I came home, I started my studies in Namur where I learned graphic and web design, photography, video, animation and editing with image treatment software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Premiere and After Effect.
In 2012, I graduated and have been a freelance Graphic Designer since.
In January 2013, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to learn from the insanely talented American letterer Jessica Hische during a two days Workshop in Berlin. She is so dedicated to her work and willing to share her knowledge and passion. She inspired and encouraged me to work hard and to never give up on my dreams.
I wanted to extend my knowledges and felt it was time to do something different.
In September 2013, I started a 5 months intensive training in 3D and Motion Design in Gosselies.
That training brought me to start working at the National Belgian Television (RTBF) as a Motion Designer in February 2014.
One year later, they asked me to become Media Manager for the campaign department. It helped me grow and meet different aspects of the television industry, especially in their campaign department. However, being away from my creative self for almost a year, I needed to go back to my roots and came back as a Motion Designer there.
In June 2015, I started giving occasional Photoshop classes at the RTBF Academy.
In the beginning of 2016, I re-designed and helped publish the new edition of the free regional magazine « Ardenneweb » . 4.000 copies were published and delivered in bakeries and shops of the region.
In April 2016, my boyfriend and I left for a year abroad. We spent 10 months in New Zealand and discovered other countries on our way in and way out. If you want to learn more about our amazing adventure, go check out the blog section above.
Told you I was an oversharer ! 😉
