Meet the Owner of submicrocosm

Marine

owner, maker, designer

Since February 2012, Submicrocosm Design offers minimalist and colorful decorative objects : stationery, tableware, garlands and prints.

My products are made in France and they are handmade. I work each day to offer quality products, then I use noble materials and I work with professionals of the impression.



I have always loved creating and tinkering , so naturally I decided to study art . I first studied the visual arts and then I studied the Cinema. With my graduating, I worked as a photographer in a fashion company in Paris. At the same time , I learn graphic design through my blog.
After a few years in Paris , I decided to move back to my hometown .

So, I begin to open a shop on Etsy and create a collection of home decor ( prints, postcards, stationery, garlands, tableware, etc). I have this project for many years.
This shop is really important to me because it's my playground, a place where I am totally free. This is my way to take off.

My products are items that I need and I want to find my home. I scribbled ideas on a napkin and I factory. If I like the result, I perfected my technique and when I am entirely satisfied, I integrates the product in my catalog. For photo shoots, I change my interior completely, I feel like moving all the time.

My world is inspired by the music. I grew up in an eclectic musical environment, hard rock, jazz, blues, soul ... I think my first inspiration comes from that. I can't live in silence and when I was a child, there was always a background sound in my house ... Led Zeppelin, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, Steppenwolf, Nina Simone, Serge Gainsbourg, Otis Redding, etc. I feel that it really influenced the person I am now, my personality, my tastes and my lifestyle.

I won the Grant Etsy Hôtel Bohême in October 2012 and I finally got to meet my clients in real life, my best experience!
I also win the award for Best Young French Designer in November 2012.

I hope you enjoyed my story and I hope you will visit my shop :
