Arnaud Mercier

Design (Cofounder)

Arnaud began his career as a film editor. A natural progression through 3-D design and into art direction led to the 1999 launch of the world renown Elixirstudio. That same year, Arnaud’s talent was recognized in the Biennial of Young Creators of Europe, Roma. His work has also appeared in the French National Museum of Modern Art Centre George Pompidou in an exhibition titled Carrefour de la Creation.

Over the years, Arnaud has worked with clients such as Alcatel, France Telecom, EMI, Nike, Patagonia, Atlantic, Heineken and Coca-Cola and collaborated with internationally recognized studios such as Wieden+Kennedy (Amsterdam), Blastradius (Vancouver), Digital Kitchen (Chicago), and Fork Unstable Media (Hamburg).

Arnaud passed away on the 26th of September 2011.

The suddenness and prematurity of his passing left us stricken with grief. Not only did we lose a dear friend and a cherished collaborator of nearly 10 years, but a mentor, pioneer and visionary. Arnaud’s warmth, simplicity and kindness will be deeply missed by all who have known him.
