I’m Inès, a French and American visual designer currently based and growing roots in London. I work across Graphic Design and Illustration, fitting somewhere in the middle, drawing inspiration from written language as a point of tension between images and words, communication systems and image interpretation. It helps join the dots between different areas and processes that inspire me, from weaving to computing, under the common thread of communicative visual patterns and programmatic making.
My work often revolves around modular, generative visual systems that can act as communication - as visual language. This informs the areas I practice in (Typography and Lettering, Pattern design, Symbol and logo design, data visualisation systems… ) and guides my process to be parametric and generative.
Ultimately, these abstract visual systems come to life when they’re interpreted into meaning, and act as a tool, design that can be shared, built upon, and interacted with. Unique typefaces that help build new visual languages, generative identities that grow and evolve, interactive experiences on- or offline, that invite the audience into the design process…
The most rewarding and enjoyable work is done through collaboration and discussion, when my work is a meaningful element of a greater project. In that space of listening and feedback, collective energy and communication is where I feel most inspired. I’m looking forward to a future practice where I can anchor my work in a sense of dialogue with a team, a client, and an audience.
On that note, I would love to hear from you. Ideas, feedback and collaborations are more than welcome.
