Let’s do stuff !

My name’s Grégory
and I want to change


I design packagings, instructions manuals, web pages, images and videos for a living. I am looking for people with purpose and principles with whom to change the world. Do you have a meaningful opportunity or a strong wish to build a working relationship? Please get in touch.

TL ; DR

My name is Grégory and I’ve been a Graphic Designer for more than years. Between then and starting my own trade on the side, I had the chance to work with great brands and people such as Justin Jin, PIAS and Play It Again Sam, Birkenstock, EMU Australia and Sockwell USA. I wasn’t published anywhere and I didn’t receive any fancy award just yet. Nowadays I’m looking for like-minded individuals to change the world with.

I quit traditional social media —I am quite fine, thank you for asking— on a private level. You can still get to know me by figuring out what I read, what I listen to or what I watch. Or you know… just shoot me an email sometime.

Who I am

Professionally

I’ve been a full-time Graphic Designer for quite a few years. I recently started a side-project called Folksier. Eventually, the goal of that project is to convert a said percentage of income into charity donations.

Personally

I am married to a beautiful Croatian woman. We have a dog, his name is Miles and he’s bringin’ in the cool. Besides that, I’m a vegetarian, an agnostic and I give my blood.


What I do

Professionally

I thrive designing packagings, instructions manuals, web pages, images and videos for a living.

Personally

I’m an INFP artist coping with depression. I take some photos, enjoy melancholic music and good movies. I pedal and run to scare the fat away.


What I’d like to do

Professionally

I’m looking for a meaningful designer position with a positive impact and a neutral footprint. I’m looking to put into practice all these things I learned from the likes of David and Tom Kelley or Greg McKeown.

Personally

I’m trying to consume more ethically and would like to help animals, somehow. I’m trying to lose a few extra pounds through running and mountain-biking. Whereas I speak both French and English just fine, I started learning Dutch more seriously in order to befriend my northern neighbours.


Where I’d love to be

Professionally

I have a keen affection for the artistic and cultural milieu, non-profits and NGOs and the tourism industry. Ideally I’m looking for a friendly team that values the end user at least as much as it does corporate interests.

Personally

Whilst living in Belgium is not that bad, I embrace the idea of relocating to most of the first ten countries listed by the World Happiness Report.

Founder &
Graphic Designer

Folksier

2018 – Present
In the woods

Folksier is my baby. It exists as an outlet to my passionate, creative and idealistic self. It’s my reaction to a growing frustration of having to endorse inauthentic values. I’m looking to develop impactful stories with authentic partners at a reasonable price. Ultimately, at least 1% of Folksier’s proceeds should go towards funding charities I believe in.
