My name’s Grégory and I’d like to change the world


I design packagings, instruction manuals, web pages, images and videos for a living. I have a strong passion for human-centered design, accessibility and equity. I am looking for like-minded individuals with a purpose and principles with whom to change the world through tiny changes. — Do you have a meaningful senior opportunity or a strong wish to build a working relationship?

Let's talk !

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 on international designs with great brands and people such as Birkenstock, EMU Australia, Justin Jin, PIAS, and Sockwell USA. I wasn’t published anywhere and I didn’t receive any fancy award just yet, but maybe we can work on that together.

This website is an ever-changing prototype relying on system font stacks. Results may vary.

“A designer that understands his design does not live in a vacuum, is a rare thing in and of itself. A designer that knows how to make his work serviceable to your business’ ambitions and dynamics, is nothing short of a singular find… Well, I found such a designer.
Grégory is a clear communicator, very knowledgeable, both creative and tidy, very patient and tremendously productive. I recommend him without any reservation whatsoever.”
— Karl Raats, Creativiteit Expert

Who

Professionally

I’ve been a full-time Graphic Designer for quite a few yearsand have 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 person. We have a dog, his name is Miles and he’s bringin’ in the cool. Besides that, I’m a vegetarian, an agnostic and a registered blood and organ donor.


What

Professionally

I thrive designing printed and digital mediums such as packagings, instruction manuals, posters, catalogues, technical drawings, and online ads. Furthermore, I enjoy branding, creative retouching and video editing.

Personally

As an introvert coping with depression, I have an acute level of empathy and keen interest in mental health. Helping others keeps me going. Besides, I also enjoy photography, melancholic music and good movies.


How

Professionally

A meaningful senior position is what I’m looking for. I wish to find the means and partners to have a positive and equitable impact through human-centered design whilst keeping a minimal environmental footprint.

Personally

Not eating meat, donating my blood and eventually my organs are passive actions. Trying to consume responsibly, participating in clean-ups and refugee assistance is a more active approach.


Where

Professionally

I have an ardent affection for the artistic, cultural, agricultural, and environmental industries, but also for non-profits and NGOs. A friendly team that values the end-user would be the perfect match.

Personally

I love Belgium but embrace the idea of relocating to top-tier countries as reported by the World Happiness Report. My current scope also includes the Netherlands and Luxembourg, but I am open to wilder suggestions.
