François Chalet works as a one-man-team in a field somewhere between graphic design, illustration and animation. His first big job was a campaign for MTV-Alarm in 1998. Thereafter he developed black-andwhite computer illustrations based on a very reduced and geometrical idea. His humorous, provocative or absurd figures have inspired other graphic designers to take the creative challenge of developing their own metaphorical language. This was the starting point for his career, and it brought him famous clients in the cooporate world. His work has been highlighted in a book, Chalet (published by Die Gestalten Verlag).
With his inimitable talent for creating figures that are not based on classic,hand-drawn comic styles,but result from a very own,programme-led visual language with extremely reduced vector graphics, Francois Chalet provides inspiration for graphic designers all over the world. Since a while he also stages VJ-performances featuring his bizarre characters and his unique humorous style.
