Graduated from the Arts Décoratifs de Strasbourg in 2009, Louis Rigaud works freelance in multimedia creation and illustration. He likes to appropriate different media: books, animated images, the web, video games... and to play with the constraints of these different media. He is more and more oriented towards multimedia projects, crossing paper and digital, book and screen.
Its production often has an educational dimension, both for children (youth edition) and for adults (popularization of science or culture), mixing a playful approach and interactivity. As an illustrator, animator or director, he has participated in several animated short films, for media such as Arte or Universcience.tv. He is the author-illustrator of six books published by Hélium and Flammarion. His website : ludocube.fr
