Who we are…
Crealo is a design practice based in Melbourne Australia, specialised in visual storytelling, including infographics and visual presentations.
Visual Consultant | Designer | Graphic Recorder | Director
I love turning complex information into visuals that compel and influence change. Visuals multiply impact. Our brains are just built that way.
To sum me up, here are 3 of my top values: 1) kindness 2) making a positive impact 3) drawing.
I was born in France and dreamed of being a book illustrator… but I grew up, and graduated as a Telecommunication engineer, with a specialty in multimedia… during the internet boom, ripe for world travel, and connected to my 4th value: learning. I worked for IT companies in France, the Netherlands, the US and volunteered for every possible trip involving travel… My version of being a ‘digital nomad’ before coworking spaces were a thing…
I made roots in Melbourne when my little ones (definitely not so little now) were born. Many life changing events happened, from light to abyss. I questioned my direction. It all led me to this design practice, Crealo. It’s evolved over 10 years to align with my most realised design strength: visual storytelling… in the form of infographics, illustrations, presentations, video animations and graphic recordings.
And I’ve combined forces with my superdude creative consultant Ben, wizard of storytelling, HCD, facilitation and humans in general… Together we love teaming up with CEOs, executives, consultants, thought leaders and earth shakers, to create meaningful change… We love helping bring clarity and fresh visual narratives that support transformation. We love a lot.
