What Now?

Deconfinement has begun in many places across the globe, which begs the question: what will happen to the communications industry? This article from the Association of Illustrators claims now is the perfect time to work with illustrators and motion designers. And that’s just the kind of artists Colagene Paris loves to represent! While video and photo production require physical presence, which can compromise social distancing measures necessary to slow the spread of COVID-19, illustrators and motion designers can work comfortably on beautiful, creative projects right from their homes. As you can see from this newsletter, they haven’t really slowed down at all over the past few months. Stay safe and take care.

Benoit Tardif / He's back!

After a few years of time off in France focusing on different priorities (expansion of the family and new personal projects), Benoit Tardif is back, and we are delighted! It is after he completed his studies in graphic design at Université du Québec à Montréal that Benoit started working with illustration. He offers simple, effective and colourful images. Often tinged with irony, his style is marked by an interest in silk screen and posters. Benoit, an illustrator from Quebec, works with traditional and digital techniques to build images designed to convey a specific and conceptual message.
