NAME: Nicolas Barlier
POSITION: Sr. Art Director
I'm Nicolas, French Creative and Sr. Art Director in Shanghai since 2014, crafting tailored advertising campaigns that resonate for my clients.
Graduate with a master's degree, I studied Design and Art Direction at Maryse Eloy Paris. Over the past few years in Shanghai, I worked at Saatchi & Saatchi, Tomorrow and Arkr advertising agencies.
During these years, I had the chance to work on a large range of projects, brands, and mediums using my creatives skills on integrated campaigns, socials campaigns, video shootings, digital interactive experiences, social campaigns, etc.
My skills range from Creative idea, Art Direction, Video, Motion, 3D, and graphic design, Knowing all these tools allow me to play on a rich creative spectrum finding the best ones to leverage for each project.
During my time in Tomorrow, we had the privilege to win the 2019 Campaign Greater China independent agency of the year and the 2019 Campaign Greater China boutique agency of the year as well as being nominated for 2019 Campaign global agency of the year.
As a tech enthusiast, I'm always looking forward to discovering new things. I learned 3D as an autodidact as well as a large part of my Video and Motion Design skills while my understanding of coding and innovative tools allowed me to build this website.
During my career, I had the chance to work with great clients from different industries, here are some of them.
