Quatrième Étage — Ophélie Raynaud & Valentin Porte — Toulouse, France
“A good publication design needs to find the balance between aesthetics and concept. Design must have meaning, purpose, consciousness, etc., and not only be visually appealing.”
Ophélie Raynaud and Valentin Porte are the founders of Quatrième Étage, a graphic-design studio based in Toulouse, France. They specialise in art direction and graphic design. The studio was founded in 2016 on the 4th floor of a building (hence the name), right after the pair completed their master’s degree at Axe-Sud Toulouse (École de Condé).
