I am a freelance graphic and type designer based in Nantes (France), in the Collectif Sans Shérif. I work both nationally and internationally for large groups or smaller structures. I set up unique creative solutions in order to help my clients better communicate and achieve their goals. My specialty is the creation of lettering and typefaces.

I grant a significant part of my time to experimentations and type design which feed my work. I am the art director of Bouclard publishing house. I write about typography for magazines and sites. I am also typography teacher in ECV school in Nantes and I give some workshops and talks.
