Hi There \\ Bonjour

I am Damien. I am a digital marketer by day & freelance photographer by night.

À PROPOS

Strategy, design and a bit of magic

Based between Paris and New York. I surfed the web when it was still in black and white. Photographer and graphic designer in my spare time.

Who the #$&% is damien_do?

Passionnate about new technology and big data, my studies have given me a deep understanding of Digital Communications. I am working at havas CX helia, a customer engagement and data agency. As an Omni-Media Specialist, I am heavily involved in all the media planning stages. With 5 years + experience within Havas, I have gained a high level of expertise in the agency’s end-to-end campaign setup, execution and reporting process. This requires both very detailed knowledge of asset specifications for online and offline media as well as unique programming skills.

Outside my media expertise, I have a strong creative background and an eye for detail. I have worked with a diverse variety of brands on several photoshoots and designed different creative materials. I am a proud native AZERTY speaker but I became fluent in QWERTY. I mean... English. Did you know that only French people use a different keyboard layout? WTF*, right?!

*excuse my French but I'm from France.

What I do on & offline

NYC made me realized that the world moves pretty fast, even in the heart of a pandemic. There is always more to discover. I like versatility in the workplace, it keeps me entertained.

Latest From The Gram.

Photography made me see again. It forced me to slow down and observe things around me. It made me fall in love with the world again. This is why I love photography. It really is a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.

So you think NY is 'dead'.

New York is a ghost town you said? Well, you try getting an outdoor reservation for brunch on a Saturday morning in Brooklyn and tell me how it goes... If I had to resume NY right now in 27 photos, it will look like this.

#RESILIENCE

Keep saying their names.

Aren't time zones amazing? In Australia it's tomorrow. In Europe it's tonight. And in the US, it's still 1940 where people of colors are still under assault by old white men. Police brutality and racism are still going strong in the world and especially here. America needs a new normal.

#BLACKLIVESMATTER

In self-iso·​la·​tion mode. ✍

Day 59 with me, myself and my bicycle. The paradox of being alone in a city of 8 million dreamers. This crisis is tough, but New York is tougher. We‘re all in this together! To all the frontline workers, thank you! Here is a mix of footage I captured during these crazy times.

#NEWYORKTOUGH

Marrakech Medina Madness.

Kicking off 2020 in the mazes of Marrakech for my first time. Kind of souk to be a tourist around here and get ripped off for a cab but so many beautiful craft shops. How many Morrocan rugs can you fit in a 30L suitcase? Asking for a friend.
