A New Website for valérydesignwrks


Summer is a great time to show off your ‘bronzage’, but since I have never been successful at tanning I would like to share with you, my brand new website, full of colourful projects! At the beginning of 2015, I made the decision to leave the agency life I had known for the last 14 years and opened the doors to my new office.

On this site, you will find work samples, a link to my online store, and information that speaks to the wide range of services valérydesignwrks offers to its clients. I would also like to invite you to visit my blog and sign up for my quarterly newsletter, which will keep you updated on all things valérydesignwrks.

I hope you enjoy your visit and have a wonderful summer!

150 Years of Alice in Wonderland

A4 Sleeping Beauty

It’s been an ambition of mine to illustrate Alice for a very long time.

To celebrate 150 years of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland I decided that I would finally tackle this classic tale. For the past few weeks I’ve immersed myself into the world of Alice, the White Rabbit and the many creatures she comes across on her journey. I created several book illustrations, some title page typography, chapter headers and endpapers.

Carlos Garde-Martin at Pick Me Up 2015

I made this video to document my involvement in Pick Me Up 2015 at Somerset House, London. You get to see behind the scenes footage of us setting up the Niki Best shop. There are clips from the private view, and more general shots over the 12 day festival. It was such a fantastic thing to be part of, if you couldn’t make it I hope this will fill you in on some of what you missed. Similarly if you did make it down and want to reminisce watch away!

JJ Abrams Star Wars / Star Trek Caricature Portrait


This is a self promotional piece caricaturing movie director JJ Abrams, director of the recent Star Trek movies and of course the forthcoming new Star Wars film. As well as JJ, I also did the same for Joss Whedon (Avengers, Firefly) and Zack Whedon (Watchmen, Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman). They were a lot of fun to do, I hope you enjoy them!
