Creative capsule / Paris, France

Here’s our eighteenth Creative capsule. This month, we invite you to meet Florent Hauchard who lives in Paris. He is first worked as a graphic designer. Then, he quickly returned to his first passion: drawing. He loves music, traveling and comic books. Three simple things that inspire him. Especially music, that is necessarily connected to the image by its context and the emotions it arouses. Florent can spend hours finding old funk, bluegrass or bossa nova albums. Meet a fabulous artist!

Describe quickly your creative lab?
A plant, a tablet and a computer, no more and no less. However, I am very mobile, and I like to work in several places thanks to my iPad Pro which accompanies me everywhere.

In two sentences, how would you describe your work technique?
First, very fast paper sketches, then a more sophisticated sketch on the tablet and finally the colorization using digital painting on photoshop.

What is the project you are most proud of?
My poster for eco-friendly conferences for BNP Paribas I think, especially at the level of the structure. https://www.colagene.com/fr/illustration/florent-hauchard/id-6831

What are your favorite colors to create?
I love yellow and purple, retro colors that vibrate!

Why did you become an illustrator?
Answer cliché: by passion. I started as a graphic designer, but I always liked drawing, like my father probably. So naturally I quickly returned to drawing in my professional life.

In four words, how would you describe your style of animations?
Retro, dynamic, colorful, crazy.

What is the project you dream of?
An album cover for Tom Misch?

What does a typical day look like Florent's life?
It always starts with a hearty breakfast, an hour of research of visuals or inspirations in a more global way, 1h of sport then direction the offices in motorcycle to work until the end of the day. I have a great coworking space with great people, so it's always a pleasure to work :)

What inspires you?
Mainly other visual artists be they graphic designers, illustrators, motion designers ... etc. and, especially music. I like to draw references to cinema as well as I do not go as often as I would like to.  

What is your favourite blog or website?
I really like Behance and Inspiration Design which are big classics for inspiring research.
