Master Thesis — 2021

This investigation into the work of graphic designers for films looks at the role of the designer in a film production and the status of graphic props in movies, the differences between graphic design that operates in our everyday reality and in film fictions, fake systems and purpose of graphic props in the narrative…

Interviews with two professionals, Fréderic Cambon and Georges Kafian, have also enriched and reinforced my research and intuitions. Neither a true expert in film analysis, nor a complete stranger to the subject, my work is simply a contribution, an attempt to analyse and understand this profession, but also a personal vade mecum, a place where I can imagine a possible future.
