Paris Roubaix
2016 – Futurebrand – Paris

Creation of the visual identity for the epic Paris-Roubaix cycle race. Alongside the Tour de France, Paris-Roubaix is the second showcase of french cycling overseas. It is the 'Classic' the most watched in the world, with the greatest number of fans on Facebook and Twitter and an international television audience of 9.2 million viewers.
More than just a race, Paris-Roubaix is the stuff of heros. An emblem: the paving-stone. The logotype brings the paving-stone the heart of the identity. The creation of a jagged typography mirrors the unpredictable nature of the race, a series of motives reflects the battle of the cyclists against the elements, an intense array of colours gives rythme to the epic and anchors it in today's world, whilst the iconographic choice incarnates the struggle and the pugnacity of these heros. The poster is rough, an allegory of the effort, portraying the 'Hell of the North'. The icons sector are indicated by special posters, and the digital declinations are a vibrant and animated translation of the identity.

Arc
2016 – A&E / Loyalkaspar – NYC

Proposal for visual identity, artistic management and conceptual development of the interface for the video platform requested by Arc. Arc is a project dedicated to documentaries for the american group A&E Networks. The added value lies in a curation system, in social networks and news (articles and interviews). At any time, the viewer can add, share and read articles concerning the documentary which he/she is watching. The covers of each documentary are re-worked and rendered uniform by means of the color range, the page layout system and the typography. Navigation directly inherits the color code and the typography of the logo.

Art et Paysage
2011 – Mairie d'Artigues – Bordeaux

Graphic conception for the cultural event 'Art and Landscape'. Conceived in collaboration with the
'Ecole des Beaux Arts' and the 'École Nationale Supérieure' for Architecture and Landscape Architecture of Bordeaux, 'Art et Paysage' is an artistic project highlighting young talents in plastic arts, architecture and landscape architecture. Its aim is to present and give free access, on a temporary basis, to artistic creations which are presented in-situ in areas of the commune.
For this fifth year, it was decided to introduce a logotype. The letter A recalls both the word Art and the town of Artigues, whilst illustrating the installations welcomed by the town. The minimalistic layout of the 'ALBUM' aims to highlight young talent, at the same time as contributing to the promotion of the laureates.

Galerie ACDC
2007 – ACDC – Bordeaux

Creation of the visual identity for the Galerie Bordelaise ACDC. Created in 2006, the ACDC gallery was initially an association, but subsequently became established as a gallery concentrating on the promotion of emerging contemporary artists.
As the gallery could not employ a graphic artist for each exhibition, the solution reached was to create a visual identity based on a system of typographic layouts. The characters A, C and D in lineal typography (Swiss 721) were replaced by symbols (>) recalling the angular architectural form of the gallery. Project realized in collaboration with Christelle Bonnet.

Le Rayon Frais
2010 – Le Rayon Frais – Bordeaux

Creation of the visual identity and merchandising for this emblematic Bordeaux shop. The 'Rayon Frais' is recognized, both nationally and internationally, since 2009, for its top of the range selection of streetwear.
Inspired by this urban culture, the typography of the logo oscillates between brutality and sophistication. The symbol of the snow-flake, on the other hand, mirrors the graphic codes of large food distributors, in opposition to the specialized tastes of the shop's very fashion-conscious customer base.

NCI
2012 – A&E Network / Loyalkaspar – NYC

Visual identity and design for the graphic image of the TV channel NCI. Before A&E Network announce that the BIO channel will change its name to Fyi and will become a life-style channel, the idea was submitted to create a channel specialized in crime and investigation. NCI is a fictive project responding to this idea. The logo NCI, standing for 'Network of Crime and Investigation' adopts the graphic codes of the FBI, the CIA and other agencies specialized in crime-fighting. The letters NCI are then projected by means of a stencil and a torch. As a result, the content appears through these luminous deformations.

Impacta Font
2015 – ESPN / Loyalkaspar – NYC

Design and conception of a font for the american channel ESPN. ESPN, the reference for televised sport, was watched by 96 million american households in 2007. The typography LK Impacta is part of the new identity for american football on the channel. Inspired by college style letter fonts and declined in a text version and a titles version, with three font weights (light, regular and bold), LK Impacta blends force and precision. The titles version has an aggressive aspect, produced by square interior borders and a nick situated on the horizontal strokes of the capital letters. The text version is easier to read, the nick disappears, the angles are rounded off and the small letters are taller.

Logotypes
2006 – 2016

Creation of logos. By nature, the logotype must be unique, functional, integral, efficient and still function in a single color, whilst representing the brand or company in an appropriate manner.
This selection of logos (proposals or final versions) plays on the basic principles of graphic art (space, color, form, consistence and clarity). Individually, the logos are in the style of commercial outlets (Avenue, Cyvea, Home solutions), of television channels (FYI, Pop, Redbull TV), of events (10 years of the Artigues Mediatec, Urban Vibrations) of artists (French Fries, Isaac Brams) or of television shows (Graves, Mike Woodson).
