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:
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.
No hidden subcontracting,
Projects delivered as planned,
Happy clients, since 2006.
Over the years, I have built a rigorous workflow. Every project is split in two parts, billed separately: the creative direction and the creative production. My clients enjoy the piece of mind of such a clear roadmap!
Delivering final products from "no idea" to execution, Creative Direction included.

First, you want a product or service that resonates with the digital needs of users. Most current leaders are struggling with this, because of a generation gap.
Advertising is inefficient and presentations are boring. Don't waste your budget paying Facebook or Google Ads. To grab the attention of your audience, you must create video and animated media content that either educate, convince or delight.
Build a strong brand or refresh an existing one. Branding is about the entire user experience: first impression matters, from your logo to your web site, and the visual language of your videos.

Many under long-term contracts and confidentiality terms.
I am located in Nyon, in the region of Lake Geneva, Switzerland.
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.
Because marketing communications is now performed through screens. And Motion design is the most complete storytelling art for screens of all sizes. This goes much beyond what "motion graphics" was, back in days of TV.
I mix time-based and fixed-price budgets. In fairness to my clients, I'm totally transparent on pricing and publish all my rates online (secret link for clients). 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.
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.
Yes. When projects require specific skills that I cannot meet, I may recommend other freelancers to my clients. In 2020, I'm looking for partners with the following background: - Illustrators - 2D character animators - 3D character animators
I only accept discounted pricing for work that supports my strategic research & development. In 2019, my focus was on 3D character sculpting. In 2020, I am starting to design content for VR.
I have worked multiple years on projects within the following industries: - Food and Beverage - Aerospace and Aviation - Intellectual Property - Pharmaceutical - Luxury Goods
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.
A story of hammer, funnel and wine tasting.
There was a time when "Seen on TV" = Truth and Trust. Can you imagine?!
Advertising is totally outdated. Let's shift to new approach.
Creatives have usually a hard time explaining to their clients what they can offer. On the other end, marketers struggle to keep up with all the digital communications options available. This leads to bad expectations and difficult pricing.
In this guide, I am sharing how I help clients understand what products they actually need. Discover the full taxonomy!
Good design cannot exist without a good brief. Over the years, I've defined a template specific to motion design.
Motion design is like cooking. Anyone can do it and there is an infinite amount of ingredients. But not everybody is a Chef! In this guide, I share the main recipes that led me to successful projects.
