Dorothee Olivereau

Marseille & London

I graduated with a DNAT Design Graphique from Ecole Regionale des Beaux Arts de Valence, France in 2001 then with a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design in 2003 from Camberwell College of Arts, London UK. I've then spent the past 8 years working in diverse environments as a designer and studio manager, namely in the stage lighting and event industry, social marketing and creative engagement, film industry (art department, strategy, marketing & live visuals production) then for the past two years in FMCG sales promotion and experiential marketing. I am now working full-time as a freelance art director and designer.

Through these varied experiences I've learned and crafted essential skills in project management, studio management, managing freelance and technical resources, trafficking, day-to-day studio running and dealing with the expanding workflow.
My all-rounder skills span art direction, graphic design, creative artworking taking ideas through from scamps to final artwork, visualising, print pre-press, conceptualizing, web design, digital marketing, video, animation and production, visual effects, film production design and photography in a confident manner. A thorough understanding of design and media production processes, delivery technologies and capabilities enables me to judge the appropriateness of particular approaches, and liaise with specialists when appropriate. I am an enthusiastic and very efficient individual at my best managing multiple projects simultaneously, often to tight deadlines with a strong can-do attitude and an unalterable smile!

Always looking to broaden my horizon, I'm currently developing Transmedia storytelling projects as an author and story architect as one half of multi-disciplinary creative studio The In-Visible Continent as well as co-founder of the T*LabMars (www.tlabmars.fr). I am also supporting various community actions in sustainability and local social development through design and marketing.
