Who are you?

My name is Joanna Ben Souissi, I am a fashion photographer, producer and consultant based in Tunisia. I also am an associate in a company that produces digital content and advertising, EMPIRIQ. I have been a dreamer all my life until the day I realised there was a way to materialise those dreams, and that was fashion photography. I like to create series in which the clothing is a tool to set the story and enrich the persona.

 

What is your next creative project?

I am currently trying to find some time to materialise some of the dreams I have, the more intricate and personal ones, but editorials and campaigns are prioritized in my time-comsuming field. I hope 2017 will be the year for me to unleash that artistic part of me a bit more. Stay tuned! ;)

 

 

 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Porfoliobox's high level of personalization potential has offered me the possibility to create a site that is a faithful reflection of my work and activities, without having to spend a fortune on it - at a time when I just couldn't, or get into complicated backoffice settings. Thanks for that guys :)

Who are you?

I am a young architect working in Marrakech where I live. I finished my studies in February 2016 and decided to work in Morocco to be fully involved in the process of craftsmanship and design.

I began to work as a graphic designer during my studies. It has become a real passion. My inspiration comes from nature as well as from everything I have been made of during my short life. Architecture, of course, but everything is inspiration to me. Nature, people... I did study architecture, but I think I am essentially a creator. I was told very early that I have "an eye". It's probably true, every thing I see is good food for creation. So today, I sell my eye, my vision! That's my work.

 

What is your next creative project?

I am currently working with a great designer, Valérie Barkowski on many different design projects: interior design, furniture, graphics....


 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I have been using this web platform for 4 years. It is a simple way to create a beautiful website. I like the fact they give you the possibility to create websites that are very different from each other. You can see my two websites: www.atlasrouge.comwww.mariebastidedesign.com

Who are you?

I have been working as freelancer for 12 years. Years before I worked as a Management Assistent for different companies (Marketing, Sales, for div. CEO’s etc.). I suffered all the time because of the lack creativity. So one day I decided to make a break in my career and to go for what I love. I do make up, hair, stylings, retouching, sometimes I need to cast models for shootings, I support photographers with ideas, concepts, organizations etc. At the beginning & in between I worked with cosmetic companies like Dior, Artdeco, Laura Mercier. I work in different areas: make up/product trainer, fashion shows, make up workshops, events, advertising etc. 

For now I work for several photo studios. Perhaps I have a talent to start with photography in the future. 

 

What is your next creative project?

At the moment I have to disappoint you because I do not plan a special project resp. I cannot plan, sometimes it is unpredictable. I am completely involved in daily photo studio business. There are many commercial and private shootings which are not a highlight to present. Hopefully I can do some creative work that is interesting to show.

 

 

 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox was recommended to me by a friend who is a photographer (Sascha Riehl) and use it as well. Indeed it is very user friendly and easy to handle. I generally love everything that is easy and uncomplicated. I like the layouts and the simplicity. I just wish for more options for the starter pages (e.g. implementation of own logos/letterings).

Who are you?

My name is Laura aka loribi. I am a fine artist with the passion for illustration. I am originally from Italy but I have been living in London for the past 5 years. Currently I am doing an MA in Printmaking which I enjoy very much. I have always loved drawing and my favorite media are pencils, inks and colorful papers.

The next creative project is the setting up of a collective show with my fellows print-makers, next February at Chelsea College of Arts in London.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox is a very intuitive platform which allowed me to create my webpage easily and neatly and this is great if you are a bit impatience and obsessed with details like myself!

Into the world of creatives

December 15, 2016

We had a chat with Jérémy Tran. He told us his story.

 

I am a 24-year-old multidisciplinary artist and project manager, graduated from the Lyon CNSMD and from Lyon's University with a master in Development of International Artistic and Cultural Projects. After starting classical dance at the age of 8 at the Regional Conservatory of Lille, I decided in 2009 to turn towards contemporary dance. I joined the Lyon CNSMD in 2010 to become a professional dancer and in 2014 obtained the Diplôme National Supérieur Professionnel de Danseur, the ADAMI scholarship and the Prodij talent trophy from the city of Lyon. All this led me to a career as a dancer-performer.

 

At the same time, I directed many short films including Artificial Landscapes, gathering 140 people, which I presented in September 2014 at the Dance Biennale in Lyon. In April 2015, the short film Dissection was part of the official selection of the 60secondsdance international festival in Denmark. I was subsequently selected to participate in the Watermill Center Summer Program in New York where I was able to work as a videographer and documentalist alongside director Robert Wilson. I also choreographed Lagune, a performance in collaboration with the visual artist Denis Savary in the fall of 2015. This year I obtained a Master in Development of International Artistic and Cultural Projects and I recently worked as Project Monitoring Officer at the National Center of Dance.
 

 

 

"I never wanted to categorize or define myself.
I go where instinct takes me and it is for me
a luxury and a great freedom."

 


 


I soon felt the need to associate other disciplines with dance, to associate mediums like photography, video, architecture, scenography. Being multidisciplinary is something that is important to me and that I feed on every day. The artistic encounters that I do also lead me in this direction. I never wanted to categorize or define myself. I go where instinct takes me and it is for me a luxury and a great freedom.

 

Classical dance carries within it a codified language, rigorous, technical, not to say compartmentalized, which I take great pleasure in watching, but which, I believe, leaves little room for improvisation, ardor, weakness and errors. I found in contemporary dance a tremendous opportunity to affirm my personality, my identity, a diversity of forms and an incredible freedom of expression. Perhaps the main difference between these two dances resides in the notion of "beauty" and in the forbidden words. The narrative and dramaturgic stakes are not the same.

Artificial Landscapes is the largest project I have carried out so far. It is both a 25 minute short film, but also photographic exhibitions, video projections, performances and lectures. It is a project that I call "total", multidisciplinary, which brought together 140 people including 82 dancers from France, Switzerland and Spain.

 

By creating this project I wanted to gather people widely around dance. The idea was to get amateurs, professionals and non-dancers to dance together, in atypical and exceptional places. The short film is only a final rendering, a pretext. The main challenge of this project lies in the performance of this extraordinary adventure, bringing together diverse sensitivities, skills, social environments and different profession around the same goal. We shot in three historic places: the railway rotunda of Grigny, the stables of the company "Petits Champs" in Beaumontel and the Citroën Garage in Lyon.

 

 

"I always try to induce envy, enthusiasm and
include each person according to his/her area
of competence, while leaving everyone a
great freedom of speech and exploration"

 

 

 

I always try to provoke envy and enthusiasm and include each person according to his/her area of competence, while leaving everyone a great freedom of speech and exploration. What I seek above all else is the flourishing of my collaborators, their authenticity, because that is what inspires me the most and what allows me, allows us to question ourselves to go beyond our limits and to produce sensitive and human projects.

 

 

 

 

 

In Artificial Landscapes the part of improvisation is great. This was essential for me, for the purpose of the project and for the meaning of the work. It required freedom of expression at all levels for dancers, but also for cameramen and technicians. The only part that was written is the common choreography at the end of the film, where the performers dance in unison. However, this freedom was made possible thanks to a framework that was very precise, well written and set up. The organization of Artificial Landscapes was extremely precise. The music, composed by Valentin Hadjadj, was not broadcast while recording. It was added in post-production. The music broadcast during the shootings were mainly stimulants for the dancers, a support to allow them to improvise.

I am at the confluence of dance, performance, contemporary art, photography and video. My artistic work tries to grasp and amplify the energy of the body, based on a choreographic and plastic research. I also pay much attention to the experience of the spectators, which I wish to be immersive. As project manager, I am eager to develop high-profile events that are accessible to all, contributing to the general interest and emancipation.

 

 

I take photographs the way I create a choreography. I work mainly with dancers with whom I experiment and seek leitmotivs, emotions, forms, attitudes. After collecting a database, I create a series, a story, selecting some of the photos and associating them with each other. The photos that make up a series have a meaning only through the others and function by association of ideas. I therefore always start with the sensations, the instinct, the authenticity of the models / performers, and then try to decipher the content of what I wish to convey to the audience.

 

 

 

 

 

Portfoliobox is a wonderful professional tool that serves me daily to build several websites.

Who are you?

My name is Kate Strucka, I'm based in Wrocław, Poland. Photography is my hobby for 6 years now, I mainly shoot beauty and portrait/fashion. What I love about it, is to see how people can change in front of the camera, play different characters, it's inspiring. 

 

What is your next creative project?

I just discover my 'photo' folder disappeared from my computer, so I probably take a look into that before any new project. But I guess it will be beauty - I'd love to take some macros, just lips or eye. For sure with some vibrant color. 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I love its flexibility! I can totally change the look of my page in just few minutes. And I don't need anybody to explain me how to do it, everything is simple and very user-friendly. I'm here for almost four years and I'm not planning to go anywhere else

Into the world of creatives

December 07, 2016

 

Who are you?

I am a graphic designer and I graduated from Faculty of Architecture in Gdańsk University of Technology. I'm working as a freelancer and recently also as a member of the Syfon Studio. In my work I try to combine visual intuition and engineering education. My favorite projects are visual identifications for modern interiors and exhibitions in cooperation with recognized Warsaw's architectural studios.

 



 

 

 

What are you inspired by?

It's hard to point one thing that inspires me. I guess I try to closely observe what is happening around me. During the project I pay attention to the context, environment and history. Exploring knowledge of typography and typeface's design is very helpful.

 

 

 

"What matters is composition,
logic of design process,
good craftsmanship

and beauty of detail."

 

 

 

How do you combine graphical and architectural work?

Although my education seems to be other than graphic design, I have always been fascinated by artwork, books and everything that was connected with the paper. Although effects of work are different than the design of buildings, the method of work and the logic remains the same. I find more and more similarities between the design of architecture, books and publications - that still surprises me. What matters is composition, logic of design process, good craftsmanship and beauty of detail.

 

 

 

 

How does a day look like for you?

I have a very slow mornings, when good coffee and a book are the most desirable  things to prepare myslef well for the coming day. In addition to my own business, I am a member of the young vibrant office Syfon Studio, where I spend a large part of the day. After work, usually I go for a run to a nearby park, that gives me relax and cool down after the impressions of the day. Usually after that I spend a few hours on my own work or learning something new for example coding websites, learning software and so on.

 

Can you describe your workspace?

I've got a large table where I can sketch, draw and create whatever I want. Additionally in the room there are a shelf, with a million books about graphic design and architecture (my husband is also an architect, so we have quite a lot of them), easel and turntable playing a good music.

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry? 

Robert Bringhurst, Jan Tschichold and my former teacher of architecture: José Mario Gutierrez Marquez.

 

 

 

 

What is your next creative project?

Currently I am working on several projects of websites, album cover (for which I'm very excited) and visual identities.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox is simple and intuitive in use, plus I don't need to worry about the domain, hosting and encoding :)
