Genevieve Gauckler is a French artist, illustrator and art director who is best known for her everevolving procession of lovable characters and technicolour digital mashes. Her works are bright, fun and hectic – often combining symmetrical designs with soft-edged computer generated images laid against photographed backgrounds.
She can look back on broad experience in the field of graphic design, illustration and art direction. Starting with french record label F Communications (Laurent Garnier, St Germain) she later worked with directors Kuntzel & Deygas on promos as well as commercials and some short movies. In 1999, she was hired by the Internet company boo.com to create their online fashion magazine. While in London, she worked for the design agency Me Company, developing a number of projects
for the web.
Since 2001, Geneviève has been focusing on videos (some experimental videos with the collective Pleix), illustrations for various worldwide magazines, advertising and books, objects, toys & Tshirts, corporate identity, character design, exhibitions. She’s now working on a new range of characters and a new comic book.
