I’m Thieb — a Multidisciplinary Designer with a focus on 3D, Motion and Interactive Design, based between Hawaii & California.

I’ve always been fascinated by the intersection of art and technology.

I love bringing ideas to life by playing with crafted visuals and meaningful animations, from screens to virtual and physical spaces.

I moved to the US in 2015, after graduating from Gobelins School in Paris. Currently Lead 3D, Motion & Interactive Designer at Active Theory, I work with clients like Louis Vuitton, Google, Netflix, Audemars Piguet, Spotify, Nike and more.

In my free time, you'll find me at the beach, playing soccer or working on Lost Giants, a very personal project & ongoing 3D Animated Series.

Spotify Wrapped is a campaign released annually that takes listeners on a journey through how they listened over the past year, and artists on how their fans streamed their content. Launched first in 2016, the experience attracts tens of millions of fans every year. I've been leading the Motion & 3D part of the experience every year since 2018, giving every transition and animation a story to tell.

Prometheus Fuels came to us with their vision of a zero net carbon world, where the public is as excited about new technologies as they were back in the golden age of science fiction. Given this retrofuture direction, we decided to build a scrolling narrative of the company’s mission, and my role was to create and animate the 3D scenes. The project won the Site of the Year award on both Awwwards and FWA.
