TGDS Graduate Emmanuelle
Meet TGDS Grad and freelance brand designer Emmanuelle. After a year of intensive study in graphic design, Emmanuelle is living her dream of running her own design business.
Hey Emmanuelle. Tell us a bit about you?
Hey, here is me, graphic designer with a French accent. After 4 years studying civil engineering and one year living in Australia, I decided to listen the strong voice inside of me and I jumped into graphic design. I am now a full time freelance brand designer and in love with my job.
Emmanuelle Bachelier - Personal Identity Design
What or who inspired you to be a designer?
Since my childhood, I’ve always been creative. I love drawing, collecting notebooks, pens and trying all the manual activities possible. But I also had the passion for mathematics so I followed a scientific course that lead me to civil engineering studies. After 4 years and some travels abroad alone, I decided to dive into what makes me truly happy, a creative career. Until I quit my University, I didn’t know nothing about graphic design, and after some research, I finally discovered graphic design was the field I wanted to work in.

What are you up to in the design world at the moment?
I am very proud to say I am now a full time freelance graphic designer! Only 1 year after diving into graphic design, I launched my own business. I am now working for passionate entrepreneurs that have a positive impact on our society. I help them be amazing thanks to having a true brand identity.

What is your favourite part of the design process?
I definitely love the sketching part, it’s the most creative. It’s the part where I can be in my bubble alone, and just follow what I want to do. I can try everything without judgement and just let all my creativity flow.
BMA Carpenter - Logo & Brand Identity Design
You were really into all sorts of design disciplines at TGDS, branding, campaigning and even packaging.
Have you a fav?
Yes! I really developed a passion for brand and logo design. I really love the idea to build something from scratch that can help the client to feel more confident and that can help them develop and grow.

Tell us anything you would like to about your featured works.
I am really happy about all the projects, even though some made me a bit crazy! But finally with patience and good tips from my tutor, I can only be proud of these projects that helped me to build my portfolio and find my first clients. The project I enjoyed designing the most is definitely the packaging design where I got the freedom to create and design something according to my own brief. I created something I would have never thought I was able of, creating illustrations and designing a range of wines.

What did you love most about studying design?
I really loved discovering, and learning something that was really new to me and that I was eager to learn for years. I love being able to express my creativity but still being lead by a brief that helps to put borders. I also loved to discover the works of others as an inspiration.

What’s your dream design job? Don’t hold back!
Well, looks like I’m already in it! To go further, I would love to work for companies that can have an impact on our world and society in order to improve it. Working for companies that share the same values of ethics for both humans and animals, love and respect. I also would love to work on type design and why not, create my own typography one day!

What would you say to someone about to embark on their own journey in design?
To trust in themselves and practise, practise, practise. Also, don’t be shy and show their work to experienced designers to get constructive feedback and improve.
