We sat down with our brilliant member Bruno. He’s an innovative, stylish graphic designer who works collaboratively with brands across the globe. He tells us all about his inspirations and getting in the creative ‘zone’.
How did you get into graphic design?
I went into photography first, giving me access to an art school in France. However, as soon as I learned what graphic design was, I was shocked, and my desire to make a career around it started.
Who/Where do you get your inspiration from?
I learned a lot alongside my ex-boss and now friend, Benjamin Grillon. I’m very grateful to know him; he will always be an inspiration to me. Besides Ben, I’m aiming to build a story for each project—taking inspiration from the history of art and technology.
What are you working on now (if you’re allowed to tell us!)?
Of course! I’m working on a few projects including, a new brand identity and e-commerce website for a Tel-Aviv-based jewellery brand, an e-commerce website for an Italian-based sole brand, a new brand identity for a real-estate agency based in Antwerp and a couple of other branding and digital projects.
What’s your favourite thing about your job?
I love being in “the zone” when working—trying to find this state of mind where everything clicks and makes sense. Music is essential to reach this state, and repetitive pieces are the most effective for me.
What’s been the most significant learning of your career so far?
Moving from Paris to London has been the most challenging and rewarding stage in my life, both professionally and personally. I’d do it all over again!
What do you like about being a member of WorkShop?
I love the space, the location and the members—some fantastic individuals are here.
What are your words to live by?
There is always a way.
