Cosmografik, is a young artist and creator who specializes in interactive media and video games. After studying printing and graphic design, Cosmografik worked as a freelance motion designer for communications agencies and began to develop his own projects on the subjects of history and street art. As a member of the Raspouteam collective, he collaborated on the Journal Illustré de la Commune de Paris as well as on the web documentary 17.10.61. After recommencing his studies at l’École des Gobelins, Cosmografik created Type:Rider in collaboration with Arte and Ex Nihilo. A videogame about typography, Type:Rider was a critical and commercial success, with more than 500,000 downloads to date. Cosmografik has since created several animated shorts and alternative videogames, such as The Seasonal Stroller and Mr. Floppy. His next videogame, Vandals (forthcoming, end of 2017), another co-production with Arte and Ex Nihilo, deals with the subject of street art. Through his projects, Cosmografik seeks to forge new links between videogames and classic disciplines such as design and history in order to help democratize entertainment and culture. His collaborators work in animation, sound design, or the development of mobile sites.
