I Craft Visions, Landscapes, Graphics, Websites.
My name is Stephanie Braconnier and I’m a designer with a background in architecture, landscape & urban design.
In 2016 I founded the studio FUTURE LANDSCAPES with the ambition to pursue a more versatile and integrative approach to design that encompasses the spectrum of scales within graphic representation, from typography, photography and digital web/print media to landscape planning at an urban scale.
I purposely seek out projects that will challenge and increase my graphic dexterity. Working on the tangents of varied design fields means that I am able to make thoughtful connections between these fields, bringing a richness and diversity to my work.
As part of my practice I use a wide variety of digital and manual tools to establish a distinctive and emotive style within the fields of graphics, visualization and design.
In my years of practice I have developed a high level of craftsmanship and adaptability that means I can work across platforms, styles and softwares to bring future, as yet unbuilt, landscapes to life.
On Modern Slavery and the Necessity of Free Time
We all know that in order to be a successful designer, you need to be in the Club of the Perpetually Busy, membership of which entails feeling smug about the painfully long hours you work doing essentially the same tedious busy-work everyone else is doing. It’s what creatives do. Or is it? What happens when we stop being busy and let ourselves be bored?
I currently practice in Vancouver and am not taking new clients.
