Hello, my name is Romain Gœtz. I am a french graphic designer / conceptor and artist. I've graduated with a Master's degree from the Haute École d'art du Rhin and with a Bachelor from the École nationale superieure d'art et de design de Nancy.
I use proteiform mediums to produce naratives and ambivalent works. I'm looking to create tensions and hesitations. Contacts and contrasts between what appears not to being able to blend. I'm interested into dominants, repetitions and borders. Notions of travelling and "around" (l'autour) are anchors which guides and feed my researches.
As a graphic designer, i'm building identities, printed / web / socials communications, fixed, animated and sonorous objects and images. On my route, i evolved inside differents communications structures and workshops on diverse projetcs, and since two years, i am working as an indie conceptor.
As an artist, i'm working on image and narration, because they bring meanings and stories. I'm telling about contemplations, hazards and confluences. I speak about the image and its usage within videos and books, which are anchored into reals, commons and closed spaces, as inside of fictionous interpretations, bringed by theater and live music.
I'm working between Strasbourg and Paris, in France.
You can send me emails at this adress : coucou[at]romaingoetz.fr.

I'm working with Minuit-Collectif. It's a connexion between graphic & object designers, makers and conceptors founded in 2014. We produce identities for places, gatherings and structures in Strasbourg and in France.
We think that an alternative approach, aside of habits, bring a different tone, a necessary singularity to make projects and concepts alive.
We make visual identities, printed objects, website, photographies, illustrations, interior design and animated objetcs. We act as advisor in communication and take care of social networks.
