Hi, my name is Cyril. I'm an art director & motion graphic designer with a flair for analogue techniques. I like to find interesting creations by combining digital technologies with rich organic textures, traditional handmade elements or live action footage.
Besides of happy clients my work has found as well an international audience at film festivals and art galleries around the globe.
I graduated from Graphic Design School in Berne in 2008. Moved to London in 2010. Since then I'm freelancing as art director and motion graphic designer in commercials / corporate / movie titles and music videos.
As director I had the opportunity to work for clients like McDonalds, Microsoft, Greenpeace and Migros (CH) to name a few. As a motion graphic designer I freelanced for top London agencies such as INTRO, TBWA, AMV BBDO, iTV and others.
I'm currently working at Swiss broadcaster SRF as a senior designer where I create designs, concepts and films for TV shows.
