Louis Rigaud and Anouck Boisrobert were born in 1985 and met at the École des Arts Décoratifs of Strasbourg. During a workshop on pop-up techniques, they create the mock-up of their first book “Popville” which will be published one year later by helium (France). They keep working together and imagine new books, in pop-up, in cut-out paper or digital… The playful aspect and the manipulation are always in the center of their creations. Anouck is now the main illustrator, whereas Louis is the developer, the animator or the paper engineer of the tandem. The idea, of course, arises from both heads.

They often conduct workshops around their work.

When they do not work together, Anouck is an illustrator for various projects and Louis invents video games, websites, or animated films.
