Developing a business? launching a new product? looking for investors?

You often need to explain concepts, technologies or complex matters to an audience.

But you've got a problem:
Nobody cares.
Advertising is ineffective,
Presentations are boring,
Facebook/Google Ads are a budget blackhole...

To grab the attention of your audience, you must think like a media company and create delightful content with a subtly crafted marketing narrative.

This is what I do for my clients.
In an elegant style, yet combining advanced visual techniques.

Simple pricing,
No hidden subcontracting,
Projects delivered as planned,
Happy clients, since 2006.

Frequent Questions

Are you an agency?

No. I am not an "agency", although my clients are billed via my registered company in Switzerland. I operate as a hybrid between a design studio and a business consultant. There are advantages and inconvenience in working directly with someone like me; I recommend going to an agency instead if you operate in an environment that requires lots of meetings, validations or calendar uncertainties - I do not have any account management resources.

Why is Motion Design important for marketing?

Because marketing communications is now performed through screens. And Motion design is the most complete storytelling art for screens of all sizes. It is both visual and audio, incorporates both video and graphic design, allows for real imagery as well as abstract visuals, computer-generated effects, illustration, 3D, typography, etc. It can even be driven by data or react to user inputs. This goes much beyond what "motion graphics" was, back in days of TV. Learn more about this in my white paper "Motion Design for Content Marketing" (link in menu)

What are the budget levels of your services?

I mix time-based and fixed-price budgets. In fairness to my clients, I'm totally transparent on pricing and publish all my rates on this page (subscribe to get the link). In broad terms, most of my engagements and productions range between 5,000 and 50,000 CHF/euros/$. Low-cost exist for everything nowadays, so I'm totally ok if my services are not a good fit for you.

Do you have special prices for startups?

Yes! I am entrepreneur myself, so I know how hard it is to set budgets when you are not making revenues yet. So here is my deal: I'll help you out with a discounted working price, until your business is launched.

Are you looking for creative partners?

Yes. When projects require specific skills that I cannot meet, I may recommend other freelancers to my clients. In 2019, I'm looking for partners with the following background: - 2D character illustrator - D3.js developer - Unreal artist/developer

Do you do "collaborations" (i.e. unpaid work)?

I only accept discounted pricing for work that supports my strategic research & development. In 2019, my focus is on 3D character design (for VR & Games). I am also open to co-marketing for Openers (depending on event visibility).

We have secret stuff. Can we trust you to keep it confidential?

Absolutely. As a long-time innovation marketing specialist, I am experienced with confidentiality and Intellectual Property. Indeed, a part of my work has always been about future products. So, beyond usual legal agreements, I have operating procedures for dealing with sensitive data (3D/CAD models, strategic marketing plans, future press releases etc.). And I do not sub-contract any of my work. That's much safer than any agency.
