Delphine Perrot is a versatile art director and graphic artist working in the fields of digital media, photography and live performance.
With a light touch as an artist, Delphine creates works and interventions that subvert and shift our perspectives, lifting us from the mundane. Her artistic manifesto is clear. With poetic and playful energy, she champions her graphically bold, expressive, engaging and often-humorous messages in dynamic and public settings. An own brand of typographically led advertising that proclaims ideas not products, and feeds off interaction with the ‘consumer’. It is not about selling, but about surprising, entertaining and opening up dialogue through diverse media, contexts and unexpected settings. Media used is as diverse as the statements conveyed, from printed placards and stickers to TV’s and mobile projections al fresco. No audience is passive, participation is key to the life of Delphine’s creations, where ‘contributors’ are invited to engage, ponder and in some cases change their meaning.
Delphine travels, explores and navigates through a mix of references, crossing over borders and creating new graphic universes. Her work therefore takes inspiration from her numerous travels and memories, and is expressive, bold and colorful. Delphine is particularly fascinated by dance, lost and found objects, typography and fashion, and her world is full of references to botanical encyclopedia, ‘cabinet d’objets trouves’, old movies, maps, and quirky, rare animals.
She has completed projects within the field of publishing, signage and graphic design and has experience in producing work on arts, cultural and educational design work. Previous clients have included Studio Myerscough, Body Shop, Sky TV, Olympics 2012, ICA, the Design Museum, Icon Magazine, Research Studio Paris, Praline, Blackdog Publishing. She has experience working with architects and other specialists on comprehensive brand identity work, including roll out for educational institutions, and designs for major international exhibitions, commercial work and for popular music and cultural festivals and events
