A little about me.

Biography

Philippe Deschênes Freelance Graphic Designer Graphist Portfolio

1977-1998

Born in Montreal, Quebec (Canada), I started showing artistic tendencies very early during my childhood. In order to put this talent into good use, I later on attended a graphic design training program. In the following years, I've also broadened my knowledge to stay updated in the ever changing world of graphic design.

1998-2004

After getting my diploma and successfully completing my internship at Phase V Communications, a Grey Healthcare Group agency specialized in pharmaceutical marketing nestled in Montreal, I was asked to stay on as junior graphic designer. During 6 years, I had the opportunity to learn with the best and soon showed promising potential. Even with limited graphic design experience, I was allowed to create my own concept designs, as well as participate and direct photo shoots.

2004-2005

In 2004, I started working at MAAX, a major bathroom products company in Montreal. When I started, the graphics department was somewhat of a mess. I took the liberty to revamp the entire studio production process by both upgrading the graphic production quality and establishing a solid project organizing and archiving system.

2005-2009

In 2005, I took on a new challenge and moved to Sherbrooke in order to co-create a 2D/3D production company. Our beginnings were in a basement but after only 4 years, we successfully established a private 3D animation school. During those years, I managed the studio and course operations as well as project coordination. I also had the opportunity to teach Photoshop for the continuing education department of the CEGEP de Sherbrooke and to direct a video game production studio.

2009 and beyond

The past years have allowed me a wealth of experience in a wide diversity of working environments and responsibilities. Over that period of time, I have developed many lasting customer relationships, which has helped me to decide to work as a freelancer. I am excited at the prospect to now share my unique perspective in work ethics and allow me to further develop the versatile graphic designer serving your needs!
