Genevieve Gauckler supports emotions

 

French designer and art director Genevieve Gauckler on the art of character design, in IdN Magazine:

” good character design is based on three main values. It has to look good, to have nice harmonic shapes, and it has to be expressive, to express an emotion or a range of emotions (happiness, surprise, empathy, anger, etc.). Finally it should be projective, by which I mean that the viewer should be able to see the character as a support of her/his emotion. This means the character has to keep a kind of neutrality in order to able to absorb everyone’s feelings.”
