Hi! ︎ My name is Etienne. I’m a French-American New Orleans native, and a recent graduate of Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) with a BFA in Graphic Design. I’m currently based in New York, ︎ working at FIAF, The French Institute Alliance Française in Manhattan.
In my ︎ personal work, I enjoy exploring alternative methods of communicating the significance of our everyday lives.
FIAF’s Bastille Day Celebration
Art Direction & production for the French Institute’s Bastille Day Celebration on Madison Avenue, NYC.
street banner, posters, web & digital assets
This year’s festival gathered 25,000+ people on Madison Ave. Assets included two giant street banners, 30+ kakemono signs displaying the program and directional signage, installed throughout the building and in the street, banners for the main stage, and tickets for wine & champagne tasting events. I was responsible for creating and adapting the identity to each format (print & digital), prepping files for production, placing the orders for external printing, keeping track of invoices, and making sure everything arrived on time.
