Who am I?
Hi, my name's Ewen Gur. I’m a visual artist with a graphic design background who turned to product design. I have a +10 years experience as a freelancer and have worked with various companies, like Apple, Volkswagen, Fila, Deichmann, Mio Mio or Galeries Lafayette Berlin. I was able to build a various skill set along the way and helped companies to develop their brand, digital strategy, marketing communication, value innovation and user Experience.
Background & Profile:
I like to qualify myself as a "French visual artist with German roots". I grew up in the surroundings of Tours, a region well-known for its castles and its “art de vivre”. I started drawing at a very early age, mostly inspired by video games and French comics. As far as I can remember, I was always attracted by storytelling. After graduating in art, I spent some more years studying and trying different mediums of expression, from commercial design to jazz music, searching for new fields to explore. I was early attracted to new technologies, started to explore graphic design and different ways to create concepts digitally, before getting into user experience design. Besides my passion for UX and UI, I am a gallery artist since 2007 and exhibit my artwork worldwide.
