Marie Colin

What's your career ?

"When I had my BTS Textile & Environment Design, I began with an internship of two months in Toulouse at Cantex. They make male clothes in particular for Devred, Celio, Alain Manoukian... For the communication on shows and for the customers, I realized a portfolio which illustrates all the Cantex products Cantex.

Then, a part-time contract was proposed to me and I continued to take care of portfolios for the communication part, then the style part and finally the finish of products."

What do you now ?

"At the same time as my activity at Cantex, I am in freelance, my first customer is Devred, I realize all their graphics. For every collection there are about forty graphics and about ten updatings every month.

You can see my graphics in their shop of Bordeaux and on the web site. Today I continue my researches by directing me on the magazine illustration (Glamour, Elle)."
