Les Créatives

Blue, shapes and materials for a festival that celebrates feminism and pluralities.

In collaboration with : A.D.O Atelier des Ouates

A scenography to fold and take away, and unify a plurality of event spaces in Geneva. 

For the 2022 edition of the festival Les Créatives, we developed a scenography that could be transportable to the different venues where the talks, round tables, and discussions of Les Créatives take place.   

The Scenography

Inspired by the graphic identity of Studio BAD, using the dominant colour blue of the branding, we designed two scenographic elements.

Regarding this first series of objects, we had a brief. We had to design something light, easily movable, that could work well online and offline. This scenography was going to be used during the different “Tables Rondes” happening all over Geneva in different venues. The aim was to bring a unified aesthetic to all the stages.

We designed a series of 3 foldable wood screens used behind the speakers and moderators. The festival’s team could mix and match the different screens depending on the event.

We created as well, a limited series of totems to place on top of tables, receptions, or stages.

The totems are made of of blue translucid recycled plexiglass and stones sourced from the fields of Veyrier. We applied a vertical cut to place the plexiglass.  

The Context  

Les Créatives is the most important multidisciplinary, feminist, and women-based festival in Geneva. Its program includes concerts, plays, round tables, exhibitions, and more.

The festival stages intersectional feminism throughout the canton of Geneva communes, as well as in Lausanne, Basel, and Zurich.   

In 2022, the festival renewed itself under the direction of the new direction team: Ermela Haile et Nevena Puljic.

HEAD 2022 Inauguration - Modular Display System

Inauguration HEAD

Assemble, Disassemble, Stock and Re-design

In collaboration with: Ivan Lavague, A.D.O. Atelier des Ouates, Moléson Impression

A modular design: metal connectors, circular wooden bars, and metallic plates, metal binders. Four materials to design different modular display system for HEAD—Genève’s new space inauguration. 


To inaugurate their new space, La Haute Ecole d’Art et Design de Genève, HEAD organised a large exhibition. Mixing historical drawings, graduate projects from all departments, commissioned art pieces, and curated spaces around the new buildings.  

Modular Display System

For the occasion, we designed a modular display system that could be reproduced in different sizes, spaces. Easy to assemble and disassemble, stock and re-design on future occasions, the modular design is made of colored metal connectors, wooden circular bars, and metallic plates attached to the wood with metal binders. 

The modules took the form of tables, exhibition panels, as well as a signage system that worked with the exhibition display design, to distribute and organize information around the spaces.  

We also decided to use the module system for the diploma ceremony happening at the same time. We declined the modules to design the photocall and the entrance piece, key scenography elements for HEAD—Genève graduation show, using the graphic design elements designed by Ismael Abdallah and Constance Jacob for the event’s poster. 

The Context

La Haute Ecole d’Art et Design de Genève, HEAD is renowned for the quality of its bachelor’s and master’s degrees. One can apply Fine Arts, Cinema, Interior Architecture, Space and Communication, Visual Communication. As well as Fashion and Accessory Design. It has established itself as a leading school of art and design in Europe.   

By the end of the academic year of 2021-2022, HEAD—Genève celebrated the yearly diploma ceremony and exceptionally, the opening of a new campus. This extension would reunite all the students from the different departments in two main campuses instead of five.
