Bonjour. I’m Théa, a freelance AD/Designer from Taverny, a calm and suburban 🏠 city in France. I’m currently working between 🚙 Berlin and Paris for cultural and commercial clients. As much as I love the smell of a freshly printed book 📖, experimenting and intercrossing digital practices drives my creative process 👓. Self initiated projects are an integral part of my work. Together with a friend 😃, I’ve recently founded Sauer, a magazine dedicated to highlight womxn perspectives and creativity.

type: Master’s thesis
date: 2015

Master’s thesis at ESAD Reims. Any graphic designer, if they have full control over their work, would be by definition an author. The emergence of the designer as an “Author-god” is one of the most discussed, complex and paradoxical ideas in the postmodern period. From commissioned to self-initiated or collective work, shapes can find themselves having to pass from hand to hand within complex structures. Is the notion of authority a good model for defining rules?
